The Standard is titled as it is due to its inspiration, namely that most standard work in the trumpet literature, the Trumpet Concerto in E-flat by Franz Josef Haydn. Written for 10 B-flat trumpets and set in 6/8, this medium-up tempo march has a great march feel while using Haydn's melodic and harmonic content throughout in Interesting, creative, and surprising ways. Note: This piece will be performed at the International Trumpet Guild Conference in Hershey, Pennsylvania in May 2017, and will be officially published at that time.
