This project strikes gold! - Movement 1

This the trumpet concerto by Roland Szentpali that was dedicated and premiered by Gabor Tarkovi, one of the finest trumpet players in the world. It incorporates all of the best practices of modern concerto writing, minimalism, classical pseudo-jazz, and film score. As far as I can tell it hasn't been played much if at all outside of Europe so I dropped some Swedish Francs on a piano reduction and solo part. The dialogue between the trumpet and orchestra is just superb and I love the free-flowing bebeop styled flourishes. Super cool find buried among all the trumpet ensembles.
