Rating: Medium-Difficult. This is a flashy trumpet solo that is often heard in concert, recital and competition situations. The brisk tempo combined with bursts of double tonguing have made this a popular technical showpiece with trumpet players all over the world. Originally scored for trumpet and piano, the use of a standard brass quintet rather than piano adds a whole new depth and colour to the sound. Now this work is not only a great trumpet solo but an interesting piece of chamber music.
