Negotiations for Trombone and Harp - “Negotiations” was inspired by the Kim/Trump summit in June 2018. It is not a political commentary, but rather a reflection on the three stages that often take place during the negotiation process. The first movement “Bombastic” is filled with syncopation, loud dynamics, and strong articulation. The second movement “Compromise” is at a slow tempo and is imitative. “Accord” is the title of the third movement. This movement proceeds as if the two instruments are one with the trombone stating the agreement and the harp supporting the trombone. Tweaks are still being made as slight variations occur as the material repeats, but the sense of accord is present throughout and the movement and composition end triumphantly. Advanced
