About the work
“Jupiter" is one of the most famous pieces from G. Holst's "The Planets" suite.
I was asked by a cornet player in Fukuoka, Japan, to compose a solo piece using the phrases from "Jupiter," which I composed (arranged) in 2017 and revised for B-flat trumpet and cornet.
The theme of Jupiter is scattered in places on both trumpet and piano. I hope you will enjoy playing this piece and enjoy their interaction with each other.
The piece opens with a trumpet solo. Play at any tempo.
Where the trumpet becomes the back melody, be careful not to exceed the volume of the piano.
The middle section transitions into a nostalgic phrase. Taste and play the tone of the cup mute.
After the cadenza, the piano begins in mp but always maintains tension and runs all the way to the Vivace.
After a classical and solemn phrase, the piece heads to a vigorous ending with an Allegro. For a moment, a shooting star flies overhead. Play through without slowing down.
Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to Yasuko Sakai for her great help in notating the piano score and accompanying the reference recording.
