An exciting new solo for the often neglected Eb Soprano Cornet, or Eb Trumpet with Piano accompaniment.

The piece is difficult, and uses extremes of range.

Players who relish the clarino tessitura should have no problems with this!

Fanfare & Soliloquy is an outstanding choice for a recital or contest piece for pro players of theTrumpet. The rousing Fanfare appears both at the beginning and end of the work, surrounding the lovely Soliloquy. While quite dramatic and featuring a few sections of technical challenge for the soloist, the work is also quite short and accessible - and a clear audience-pleaser!

A skilled accompanist would be most helpful given the mixed meters and frequent tempo changes; however, the work would also be a manageable challenge for a young pianist working on his or her accompanying skills!

Overall, the piece helps to fill an important void for the Trumpet repertoire - that of new, original works for the instrument which are accessible for musician and audience alike.
