Hurry Up

for 4 trumpets

Hurry Up was written in 2003 and is dedicated to the Freiburg Trumpet Ensemble. It was written as part of a recording project by the Freiburg Trumpet Ensemble (New Dimensions - Summit Records DCD 366) and is a study in seconds. Written for 4 trumpets, the piece at times uses 2 groups of 2 trumpets antiphonally, while at other times combining all four trumpets. Of particular interest is the use of whisper mutes - practice mutes so soft they are normally used for late night practice sessions in hotel rooms. Anthony Plog
