Joseph Fiocco’s Allegro for Bb Trumpet and Piano is a beautiful example of trumpet literature in the classical style. This piece would be used brilliantly as stand-alone performance repertoire, but also as a character study to prepare for the Haydn Trumpet Concerto.
The solo’s range is between concert C below the staff and concert G at the top of the staff. As one would expect from a classical Allegro, there are fast sixteenth note patterns that require flexibility and dexterity to be played with appropriate lightness.
