Abstract:
At 5:30pm on Monday March 17, 2014 Frederick presented a classical trumpet recital of 20th century literature in the University Auditorium. The recital consisted of several pieces displaying modern instrumental compositional techniques as well as the different instruments commonly performed from the trumpet family. His program opened with an exhilarating performance of Tomasi’s Semaine Sainte a Cuzco for trumpet and organ. The program continued with the unaccompanied solo Cascades, composed by Allen Vizzutti for the 1981 International Trumpet Guild Conference. Concluding the first half Frederick performed Richard Peaslee’s Nightsongs, composed for trumpet and flugelhorn with piano accompaniment. After the intermission Frederick open the second half of the with the trumpet trio Fanfare for St. Edmundsbury composed by Benjamin Britten. The trio featured the use of two additional trumpet players from the University, performing their distinct parts from the Auditorium balconies, creating an ominous array of musical sounds surrounding the audience. The program continued with the performance of Leonard Bernstein’s Rondo for Lifey. To conclude the program Frederick performed Ewazen’s Concerto for Trumpet and Strings with a piano reduction. ( en )

Semaine Sainte a Cuzco is an imaginative representation of Cuzco's Holy Week celebrations. The bristling fanfare from the trumpet accompanied by the rumbling of the organs dense harmonies sets a daunting mood. Casacades was composed and performed by Allen Vizzutti for his 1981 performance at the International Trumpet Guild Conference performance. The pieces provides ample challenges for any brass musician with its angular and technical passages preformed unaccompanied. V izzutti is a graduate of the Eastman School of music and is internationally celebrated as one of Nightsongs was commissioned by trumpeter Harold Lieberman for a recital at Carneg ie Hall. It is one of the very few pieces composed specifically for flugelhorn solo and features the dark lyric qualities of the instrument. It can be performed on symphonic programs with a large string section, with chamber orchestra strings, or in recita l in its piano version. It can also be performed equally as well with either clarinet or trumpet solo and in a recent arrangement for Richard Peaslee Fanfare for St. Edmundsbury presents three very unique fan fares each performed as separate verses played in turn. The solo differ in thematic material, time signature, and key signature giving the piece a chaotic representation when each of the three fanfares are performed simultaneously. As the fanfare reach the end Britten as composed a defining resolution with the appearance of block chords providing the piece a sense of completion. Rondo for Lifey, for Trumpet and Piano Rondo for Lifey was a piece composed Leonard Bernstein. Bernstein composed this piece in quaint piece. It was composed for a five piece series for brass ins truments that was commissioned by the Julliard Music Foundation in 1959. Concerto composed by Ewazen was originally composed for trumpet and strings but has been adapted for trumpet and piano. This selection presents a very modern approach of technical and musical changes as it incorporates many avenues of technique, multiple tonging as well as linear phrasing with a playful interplay with the accompaniment.
