Trumpet Concerto for David Elton
Australian trumpet player David Elton will workshop and premiere my Trumpet Concerto, written for him. David is Associate Principal trumpet with the London Symphony Orchestra, having also been Principal trumpet with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, amongst others.
David has long championed new Australian music. He performs a varied repertoire in his recitals around the world, both as a soloist and in tours with the Australian Brass Quintet.
The Trumpet Concerto will feature contemporary elements mashed together with more traditional classical writing, allowing the soloist to explore different styles and techniques, and take the listener on a journey outside the concert hall.
