Diversions for Brass Trio by Roger Jones has been added to the IHS Online Music Library.

Diversions for Brass Trio was sketched in the spring of 1980 as a compositional exercise to explore the medium made standard by Francis Poulenc's Sonata for Horn, Trumpet and Trombone. Like that milestone piece, Diversions is neoclassical and at times whimsical. The completed sketch was set aside until 1989, when a few revisions were made, and the work was premiered at The University of Louisiana at Monroe (then Northeast Louisiana University) in April of that year by the Chamber Arts Trio.

Diversions consists of five movements. The first, "Statement", presents a bold motive that is then developed imitatively. It becomes a cyclic theme for the work. As the title implies, Diversions is meant to be used "as needed," that is, as a concert work in its entirety or broken into smaller units where that application would be desirable. The level of difficulty is such that it would lend itself to student performances as well as those by professionals.
