André Previn Triolet for Brass (1985)
In poetry, a 'Triolet' is a stanza of eight lines in which the first line matches the fourth and the seventh, and the second corresponds to the to the eighth. Therefore, the thematic material of the movements involved is the same, although the character and scansion of the notes are greatly altered.

The statement of the theme in the last movement is the favourite of my one year old son, especially when the words 'I love a baby who can bounce, bounce, bounce' are sung to the tune! This may not be the zenith of musicology but I am plesed to dedicate the piece to him. TRIOLET was composed at the request of Philip Jones.
