Hopewell Homestead from Hopewell Suite for Trumpet Sextet
Sixth Movement from Hopewell Suite for Trumpet Ensemble
by Eddie Lewis
Hopewell Suite is a trumpet ensemble composition for four trumpets and two flugelhorns. It was composed in 2016 using inspirations Eddie Lewis collected while he was in South Africa for the jazz festival in Grahamstown, in the Eastern Cape. Hopewell is the name of the farm where Eddie and his wife stayed most of the time while they were in South Africa. The farm is owned by their brother-in-law.
Hopewell Homestead is the sixth movement of the suite. The farm is a traditional one. This is not only a place of business, but a home to the Kretzmann family and my mother-in-law. It is a warm and welcoming home, full of joy and life and......pets.........lots of pets. :-)
