Solo for trombone and piano.
From the French Conservatory solos, this piece is a standard in the repertoire for trombone and should be a must for any serious player. A very fine selection characterized by expressive phrasing and rich harmonies that will challenge advanced high school and college players.
Andante et Allegro for Trombone and Piano was composed for the annual trombone competition at the National Conservatory in Paris in 1935. The beautifully lyrical Andante provides wonderfully expressive phrasing opportunities while challenging the trombonist with quick and agile yet soft and legato figures. The contrasting Allegro gives vent to the brilliant, virtuosic possibilities of the instrument.
