Sequenza X (author's note)

Sequenza X
for C trumpet and piano resonance (1984)

The transformation and the overcoming of instrumental (or vocal) idiomatic performing aspects is often intrinsic to the musical development of my preceding Sequenzas. In Sequenza X for trumpet and piano resonance there are no timbral transformations nor cosmetics: the trumpet is used in a “natural” and direct way. Maybe it is exactly this nakedness that makes Sequenza X the most challenging of all.
Sequenza X was written in 1984 for Thomas Stevens.
