J. E. Barat’s Lento & Scherzo for Bb Trumpet and Piano is a beautiful piece of trumpet literature in the French style. This piece would be used brilliantly as stand-alone performance repertoire, as well as for use as stylistic refinement.
The solo’s range is between concert Bb below the staff and concert A above the staff. As one would expect from a Scherzo, there are fast triplet figures that require lightness and delicate articulation.
