Product Description

The word "nexus" is defined as a tie or link between people and events. "Nexus", for solo trumpet and band, includes several links between composer James Curnow and educator Alfred Watkins, to whom the work is dedicated. A well-known theme (particularly to Mr. Watkins' students) is drawn upon as the piece utilizes two primary musical settings -an energetic and agile scherzo that appears in the beginning and again at the end, contrasted with an expressive "Ballad" theme. The soloist at the premiere (and on the recording) is Christopher Watkins, Alfred's son. This is a well-crafted and rewarding work for soloist and band alike. Dur: 6:00
