    Concertino (Dechoux) [trumpet in C]

    20th Century (1948). French composer. Written for trumpet in C, this is a popular virtuosic work for the professional. Extended range from low Ab to C# above the staff, long phrases, extended triple tonguing section, flutter-tonguing, harmonically challenging, melodic treatment often involves unexpected intervals and leaps. -pc

    This work, commissioned by the Paris Conservatoire as a competition piece for instrumentalists, holds a special, perhaps precursory place in the work of Andre Jolivet. The aesthetic is situated within the general trajectory of Jolivet's work that began after World War II: a synthesis of a magical, incantatory style still under the direct influence of Varese's work of the 1930s and an attempt to create a more easily accessible music brought about by the war years. Introduction and performing notes by Raphael Dechoux. "Musique francaise" is a series designed for students and teachers as well as professionals. These editions offer masterworks in French music, with performance suggestions and historical and stylistic commentary by noted scholars. -the publisher
