Hard Knocks for Trumpet and Piano

Hard Knocks is a bold  and exciting new work for trumpet and piano. Initially, the piece combines percussive chords in the piano with angular melodic figures in the trumpet. As the work progresses, all of this aggressive energy is subdued; the pounding piano chords evolve into light staccato patterns while the angularity in the  trumpet becomes lyrically melodic (although, as you’ll find out, this doesn’t last for long!)
Hard Knocks is around seven minutes in length. A PDF perusal score and and trumpet part is available on request.
