Scherzo

for trumpet and piano

This Scherzo is a short and lively piece intended to be enjoyable for both performers and audience alike. Although there are several lyrical and somewhat atmospheric sections, most of the piece is very rhyhmic and technical. The trumpet part is written in a very tonal and traditional style, while the piano quite often interrupts with short staccato bursts of chord clusters. A solo cadenza for the trumpet appears toward the end of the piece, leading to a final and yet more energetic coda.
