TRP-114 Three Snapshots [7] Piunno, N.

Composer: Piunno, Nicole
Number of Trumpets: 3
Key: Bb concert
Duration: 3 minutes and 20 seconds
Difficulty: 7
Three Snapshots is made up of three one-minute vignettes that are highly motivic and contain a great deal of energy and precision. Fun to play with lots of interweaving and independent lines. The details of accents, dynamics, steady clock-like tempos, and precise cut-offs of notes are elements of attention as they contribute greatly to the sense of the work's inherent drive.

  • The recordings are of the above in order, starting from the left. Each recording has the tune played four times, the first being the tune as set by Mr. Olcott for three trumpets. The second is the setting with Descant No. 1 for three trumpets combined with the primary trumpet trio. The third is the primary trio with the second descant (again for three trumpets), and finally, in the fourth, all nine parts are played together. All of this is meant to show the flexibility of the publication. Exhilarating, majestic, and inspiring.
