For trumpet, trombone and tuba trio
I first came to know Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonatas in my college music history class, through the Norton texts. That first semester of music history was tough for me - I was forced to analyze music in a way I wasn't used to and didn't like. Luckily, when we got to Corelli, Norton had this beautifully simple excerpt for us to study. I fell in love, and quickly arranged it for a brass trio (trumpet, trombone, tuba) with a couple friends. It was premiered at the honors recital at Doane College on February 21st, 2006.
