“ From prior experience, I never liked how the first instrument would usually get the melody while the second instrument got the harmony. I decided to make it fair and have the trumpets switch. That way they can both play the melody while those listening can hear a reprise of the melody with a different harmony. I feel the story of the piece is that there are two trumpets trying to best each other but end up finding that no matter who has the melody, they still sound great together.”
