    For trumpet and piano reduction with optional percussion. Demo CD included.

    Alcántara was conceived during a tour of Spain. The piece does not, except for the occasional hint, resort to musical cliché or pastiche, but reflects in a small and personal way the intensity of life and the strength of expression in this very special country, its people and culture. The spirit of flamenco was an inspiration for aspects of the texture of Alcántara.

    "...This is an exciting new work for advanced soloists seeking new and original sounding trumpet music...... an outstanding and fresh-sounding contemporary composition..."
