This work for trumpet or cornet was written by Kenneth Downie for Jamie Hood's solo CD, Crossroads


Dr. Ronald Holz writes: 'Kenneth Downie’s Rondo contrasts a sunny, ebullient main theme with both a more relaxed secondary theme and a slower, middle section. That reflective middle returns towards the end of the work in a lovely musical dialogue in which the rondo theme has the final, happy declaration. Again, the performers’ facile delivery belies the demanding nature of the composition, one that I am sure will prove popular on any trumpeter’s solo concerts.'
