Concertino for Trumpet and Piano
By Joseph Kaminski
Category: Brass - B-flat Cornet (Trumpet) Solo
Instrument: Trumpet
Level: (V)
The Concertino for Trumpet and orchestra, published in the Composer's own reduction for Trumpet and Piano, is his most original composition and was written in a humorous spirit. The first movement is described "Un Poco Vivaldi;" its theme being a travesty of the main subject from the most hackneyed of Antonio Vivaldi's violin concertos. Around this parodistic quotation of the theme, Kaminski builds a movement full of spirited development. He follows this with an improvvisazione, a sliow lyrical movement, in which the solo instrument enters and closes with a cadenza that has a liturgical touch and is answered by the orchestral choir with an "Amen" like response. The finale, a boisterous Tarantella, Follows without interruption. Duration: 16 Minutes (MCA MUSIC)
