Solo Trombone or Euphonium and Brass Quintet

The opening unaccompanied passage of this work was originally written as a short memorial piece for saxophone, but was later adapted as the basis of this more developed work for solo euphonium or trombone.

The work uses a variation structure, with both the soloist and the accompaniment changing throughout the piece; the harmony, rhythm and melodic lines leading somewhere new and different each time they are heard – similar to the way our memories of a person often wander in different directions, but are still always focused on that person.
