Description: “Trysts” involves two trumpets that, like their human counterparts, alternate between sections in which each has some independence and sections where the two come together. In the independent sections each trumpet has its own sound quality (either one is muted or both have different mutes). Each of these sections has its own tempo. The sections where the two come together, in contrast – including the beginning and the end of the work – have similar sound qualities between the two trumpets and are marked by the same tempo indication throughout the work.
