Trumpet Concerto reworked and fine tuned

I've been working with Peter Auricchio on fixing some of the playability problems in the 3rd movement of my trumpet concerto. We settled on having him begin the piece on the B-flat trumpet to give a richness to the opening - then move to the piccolo trumpet to allow for some soaring moments. The movement returns to the B-flat trumpet to round out the piece and give the melodic line warmth.

Here is a midi realization:

The piece is destined to be performed by Mr Auricchio with the Niwot Symphony Orchestra for their 2010-11 season, although a final date hasn't been set. I'll keep you posted.
