Trumpets, trombone and bells engage in jubilant repeating motifs that blend, contrast and vibrate on a warm summer afternoon. Bell Garden, a piece in three short parts, was conceived for the beautiful lily garden at Gartenatelier bellabayer in Hartberg, Austria. The bell shape of the lilies and their rich variety of copper and brass colours dictated the instrumentation of the piece.

The piece was written for the Austrian concertello concert series 2013.
