Twelve motifs in constant variation, developing their respective characteristics in different musical hues comprise the core of the composition. The three parts of this concerto for two trumpets and two ensembles are dedicated to three respective focal points: Contrast – Virtuosity – Improvisation. The dialogue between the soloists and between the ensembles is also developed in numerous variations in the sense of musical dramaturgy.
