The 4 pieces comprising the Outdoor Suite are written with the young brass players in mind featuring comfortable keys, phrasing and range that will suit a player of intermediate grade.
The time durations and rhythmic figures are within the skill set of a young player but with some challenges, particularly the syncopations in some of the pieces.

Short Trips explores the creation of non-jazz works that are based on a well-known jazz standard. Each miniature portrays a possible everyday journey, using the changes from the standard in different ways, sometimes following the chords, sometimes using the chord notes as part of a melodic line.

Concerto for Trumpet and Strings, c.18'00
Batterham’s Trumpet Concerto showcases the incredible spectrum of emotions the trumpet can convey, in the hands of a dedicated performer. The music ranges from Classical to minimalism, from ballads to fanfares, culminating in a wild dance designed to boost the stamina and energy of performers to the sky.
The Trumpet Concerto was written for Australian trumpeter David Elton, currently Principal Trumpet with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. It was commissioned by ABC Classic through the ABC Fresh Start Fund.
It includes trumpet parts in C and Bb.
