Hopewell Adventure from Hopewell Suite for Trumpet Sextet
Fifth 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 Adventure is the fifth movement of the suite. If you're up for it, there are adventures to be had on the farm. We love trompin' through the bush, through the woods, around the cow pastures. Oh, the things we see when we explore the area. This movement is supposed to paint that picture, the fun of exploring land that can seem even more remote than a national park.
