Sonata for Heroes
Sonata No. 1 for Trumpet and Piano - nicknamed "Sonata for Heroes" - is a three-movement trumpet sonata designed to set the stage for your very own hero arc. Featuring the crisp and sprightly sounds of the C Trumpet and the soft and contemplative colors of the Flugelhorn, "Sonata for Heroes" sets the stage for a world that awaits its modern-day hero's triumphant appearance. The only element missing in this story is you - the hero. Are you ready to show the world what you're made of?
Sonata for Heroes was commissioned by a consortium led and premiered by Dr. Jason Bergman, Associate Professor of Music (Trumpet) at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music on November 11th, 2022.
