“Through Space and Time” was inspired by the great soundtracks of the Sci-fi motion picture genre. The music is designed to evoke images of high adventure, space battles and rocket ships.
Optional C Trumpet parts are provided as an alternative to B-flat Trumpet 1 and B-flat Trumpet 2. Optional C Trumpet parts for B-flat Trumpets 3 & 4 are NOT included because those parts have a valve flutter effect at measure 129 that can't be satisfactorily produced on a C Trumpet.
“Through Space and Time” was commissioned, premiered by the students of Hiroaki Hayasaka (trumpet master based in Kyoto, Japan) in honor of his 60th birthday.
