In Memoria for trumpet and piano

28 (score) + 24 (2 part.) pages, 21 x 29,7 cm

Trumpet (B or C) and piano



In Memoria is a piece for trompet and piano, written at his own demand for the trompetist Romain Leleu. It is composed of two movements, each one of them being a tribute to a musician-composer of the second half of the twentieth century. The movement Astor refers to the bandoneonist Astor Piazzolla, and mixes the language of tango to that of contemporary music; Thelonious is a movement dedicated to the pianist Thelonious Monk, and it inserts as a quotation the beginning of the theme Straight no Chaser that the composer then obsessionally develops in the way of Monk's musical writting. The unity of the piece in its whole comes from the deeply rythmical character of the two pieces, reflecting the sound universes of tango and jazz, but also from the deep nostalgia that it sometimes reveals. A perfectly mastered composition, and definitly modern.
