Solo Trumpet and Orchestra
(durations are in parenthesis)

SKYLINES for trumpet (Bb or C ) and orchestra by Howard Buss is a musical urban portrait in two movements. No specific city is depicted; rather, the composer captures, in a broad manner, the essence of the big city spectacle. The lyrical and majestic first movement, Panorama, suggests the expansive grandeur of a cityscape. The second, Amid the Spires, is influenced by jazz and captures the dynamic energy of life on the busy streets. The trumpet and piano version was premiered by Eric Berlin, trumpet, and Nikki Stoia, piano, at the 2003 International Trumpet Guild Conference. The orchestra version was completed in 2006 and premiered by Dr. Jay Coble and the Imperial Symphony orchestra.
