Young Artist Series, No. 1: Integrity (tpt & piano)
Listen along with the score here: (34) Integrity, by Dr. Daniel Thrower - YouTube
Austin Elmer was a student of Dr. Thrower for about a year in Phoenix (2006-07). He ran his private studio at a music store, but taught Austin through the Herberger College for Kids at Arizona State University. Austin was his only student there, and as such, whenever his schedule was altered for any reason (which was often), it interfered with Austin's lessons. As consolation for several missed lessons Dr. Thrower sat down and composed this work for him.
The title has dual meaning: first is its significance described above; and second, Austin’s mother had an “@integrity.com” email address, which offered the perfect inspiration for the title. Dr. Thrower had been meaning to compose several works for younger trumpet performers. This was a very worthy way to begin.
