Ten Year Suite

Composer/trombonist Nick Finzer was commissioned by the Institute for Creative Music to create this work for a 10-piece Jazz ensemble. “A Ten Years Suite” is an intimate musical reflection of Jazz composer and trombonist Nick Finzer’s most personal relationships, and how they have evolved. Musical reflections of a decade in the life of a young artist evolve around common themes of the human comedy which will touch you as they have touched him.

“A Ten Years Suite” is Presented in Three Parts: “Into the Past” (Movements I,II, & III) “Living in the Present” (Movement IV & V), and “Look to the Future” (Movement VI & VII). The piece features a blend of ensemble textures alongside improvisational moments for each member of the ensemble. The suite allows the musicians to showcase their unique musical sensibilities, and tell this musical story.
