Fandango for solo trumpet and trombone was written on commission in 2000 for the University of New Mexico Wind Symphony for Philip Smith and Joesph Alessi. This six-minute piece explores the rhythmic, melodic and syncopated elements of the Spanish fandango dance form (a lively dance in triple time for two dancers). The work divides itself into three sections:

The first is a combination of lively melodic and articulated interplay between the trumpet, trombone and the piano.

There is a stately chorale that opens section two. The trombone adds itself to this material culminating in a short cadenza leading into the third section. Section three is a basic recap of the opening material, but this time the soloists work the themes into a canon.

There is a brief return of the chorale and then a fast coda reiterating the work's various rhythmic elements.

Listen to Joe Alessi and Philip Smith performing this great work:
