Honeymoon is a trumpet concerto in which the soloist functions as a protagonist, narrating a story of love, passion, dreaming and longing.

Through dreaming, the soloist is moving between two different worlds – one of intimate solitude, loneliness, nostalgia and heartbreak, and the other full of life, love, sweetness, lightness and togetherness.

By daring to dream and by surrendering to the stream of emotions, the soloist gets to experience the feelings they are longing for and maybe once had – joy and happiness, tenderness, optimism, infatuation, passion and euphoria.

When the dream ends, a spark is left – a new morning that feels a little bit lighter and more hopeful than the one before.
