Tobin Stokes, Trio Lyrical

This piece was a joint commission of the Reveille Trumpet Collective, and it was a privilege to perform in the premiere with Adam Zinatelli and Timothy Quinlan at the Banff Centre in July 2010.

In the composer’s words: “I was on a quest at first to write something technically amazing… And then I just thought ‘You know what, let’s focus on something else.’ I opened my heart instead of my brain and looked for how could I give the trio a musical experience that they could share with the audience.”
