Concertpiece - score & parts [solo trumpet feature]
From the dynamic, driving introduction to the expressively lyric Andante cantabile, Concertpiece for Trumpet was created to showcase both the technical and lyrical qualities of the trumpet. Whether cascading down difficult runs, negotiating its way through exciting double-tonguing passages, or soaring above the ensemble during the most expressive moments, the trumpet soloist is challenged to perform at an extremely high standard of excellence. After an expressive middle section, the brilliance and energy of the opening allegro returns, then the coda focuses on the interplay between the soloist and the ensemble. A dramatic flourish of ascending runs brings this work to a fitting conclusion.
