Four Parables started off as a composition for solo, unaccompanied trumpet. I later expanded it to six trumpets after talking to Marie Speziale about the difficulty level of the solo work.
I don’t often recognize any of my compositions as my favorites, but Four Parables definitely fits the bill. It is unique without being odd. It tells a story without being programmatic. Each movement is an abstract reflection of one of Jesus’ parables.
