Smooth Surfaces is a study in “legato” playing. The piece requires a lyrical approach in its fast and slow passages. There is a close dialogue between the horn and the piano as the two instruments weave a delicate musical texture.

Composed in 2016, the work was commissioned by the Brass Bands Association of New Zealand for the tenor horn solo competition at the National Contest held in Wellington in 2017.

This arrangement for Horn in F was made by the composer in 2017.
