Number of Trumpets: 7
Key: Eb Minor concert
Duration: 6 minutes
Difficulty: 6
A solo for B-flat trumpet (double on flugelhorn) with a six-part trumpet ensemble as accompaniment. Tempestas is the Roman goddess of storms. Hobbs was inspired by Hurricane Irma and says that this piece has the intensity to depict the storm's ferocity yet elicits as well the awe of the massive power of nature. The solo parts requires a range up to E-natural, but is otherwise not terrifically difficult. Accompaniment parts are rated 4's and 5's in difficulty. Some very interesting Harmon mute effects are employed in this piece. A really cool piece to show off your strongest player with fellow trumpeters creating the backup.
