Hiraeth for solo trumpet in C (duration: 4’)

for Abby Temple

Hiraeth is a short lament for solo trumpet written as part of my project to take on “mini-commissions” for unaccompanied works during the spring and summer of 2020.

Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no direct English translation. The closest approximation is along the lines of homesickness, longing, or yearning, but the longing expressed by hiraeth is for a home that you cannot return to, no longer exists, or maybe never was.
