This work was commissioned to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Wichita Jazz Festival and was conceived as a piece that shifts between bossa nova and tango. Harmonically it mines Chopin's Prelude in E minor, op. 28, no. 4--a chord progression used by both Jobim and Piazzolla--and the title suggests a connection to Beethoven. The prevailing texture is contrapuntal in the spirit of Renaissance vocal music along with several other reworked conventions of Western concert music. It is conceived and written as a trombone feature, but additional solo parts are provided for B-flat, E-flat and other concert key instruments making this an ideal feature for guest artists and soloists ranging from flugalhorn, guitar, or even violin. The chord changes are fairly simple but require the soloist to adapt through form and feel shifts. Easy to moderate ranges for all wind instruments. 5,4,4,P,B,D, Opt'l Vibes. Medium difficult.
