Here is an excellent description of the 24 Lyric Preludes for Trumpet and Piano by the composer, David Evan Thomas:
24 Lyric Preludes for Trumpet and Piano is a unified cycle of 24 contrasting pieces in all major and minor keys and may be played in sequence, by book, or excerpted in any order that makes musical sense. As in Chopin's Préludes for piano, each major key is paired with its relative minor. But the 24 Lyric Preludes move softly down a descending ladder of thirds and flat-wise around the circle of fifths. Many aspects of the trumpeter's stock-in-trade are explored—double-tonguing, lip slurs, extremes of range and volume—as well as references to rhythms, patterns, and problems encountered by the orchestral player. The tonal spectrum may be widened further through judicious use of cornet and flugelhorn and creative choice of mutes. While there are a few notable links between movements (e.g., the Improvisation to the Nocturne; the return of the Prelude tune in the Finale), each piece deals with a characteristic style or musical idea, and most stand on their own. The piano is an equal partner throughout.
Here is a testimonial of this very fine work:
"This is one of the most significant major works for trumpet and piano that I have seen in many years. It is a rare combination of great variety of nuance and challenges with a very broad audience appeal. I can recommend it highly and enthusiastically."
David Baldwin, Professor Emeritus of Trumpet, University of Minnesota School of Music
The complete work is about 36-40 minutes in length and is appropriate for advanced performers. Parts are supplied for B-flat and C Trumpet.
