Caprice No. 2 for Trumpet and Piano by Eugene Bozza, pub. Leduc


Item Details

Solo for C or B-flat trumpet; piano accompaniment in C.

To this day, Eugene Bozza (1905-1991) remains one of the most prolific composers for wind instruments, despite being a violinist himself.  During his studies at the Paris Conservatoire, Bozza won prizes for Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome.  He then conducted the orchestra of the Opera-Comique and became Head of the Conservatoire in Valenciennes.  

Composed in 1978, the Caprice No. 2 addresses advanced aspects of the trumpet, including complex rhythms, exploited tonality and articulation. 

As music educationalist Paul Griffiths has written of Bozza's compositions, 'his works reveal melodic fluency, elegance of structure and a consistently sensitive concern of instrumental capabilities.'

Duration 4 minutes, 30 seconds.
