PROGRAM NOTES Dutch composer Otto Ketting has written numerous pieces for various combinations of brass instruments. His Intrada, for trumpet or horn, was written in 1958. Halsey Stevens is recognized as one of the more prolific American composers of the 20th century. In fact, his enormous output in chamber music has led to him being called the 'American Hindemith'. However, any comparisons between the two end there, for his style is very much his own. His Sonata for trumpet and piano (1956) is driven by frequent meter changes, technically demanding yet lyric trumpet lines, and, in the slow movement, portrays a calm, introspective character. This piece is a favourite in the trumpet recital repertoire. Alessandro Scarlatti was a composer who wrote exclusively for the voice. It was not until the last ten years of his life that he showed any interest iii purely instrumental music. Furthermore, his 7 Arie con Tromba Sola is unique because these arias are not excerpted from cantatas or operas, but seem to have, been written as independent concert pieces. Mio Tesoro My love I die for thee! Come 30on to comfort me This heart so sorely longing Calls thee to restore it, My love I die for thee! Si Suoni la Tromba Let the trumpet sound. My loyal warriors, Proudest on the field, In arms, it resounds. Let the trumpet sound. 'The Concerto for Trumpet, Bassoon and String Orchestra (1949) by Paul Hindemith was first performed on November 4, 1949, at the Yale University Art Gallery in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences. It is sometimes performed with trombone instead of Bassoon, as in this setting. Tombone players everywhere will admit to having played from the bassoon repertoire at some point in their ],wes! Vocalise , by Sergei Rachmaninoff, is the last of his Fourteen Songs Op. 34. This constant stream of wordless melody was written specially for the color-atura soprano voice of Antonina Nezhdanova, and has since been transcribed for just about every instrument. This particular arrangement was done by UBC faculty member and Vancouver Symphony's principal trombonist, Gord Cherry.
