The first movement, Lake, depicts a flat calm inland body of water where things are at peace. The second movement, Waterfalls, illustrates a river picking up speed through playful but lyrical melodies. The water finally comes to the edge of the falls, crashing down and trickling off into the distance. This colourful work shows off the lyrical side of the trumpet or cornet. The use of cup mute throughout creates a beautiful timbre that would be welcome change on a recital or concert.
