Walter Smith edited this wonderful work by T.V. Short for trumpet and piano. Maud “Valse Brillante” is a fantastic intermediate showpiece for the trumpet that allows the player to show off their technique, fingering, lip flexibility (especially through the written cadenza), musicality, and endurance.
This 6:15 solo for trumpet and piano has been a staple of the repertoire since it was originally brought to light by Walter Smith himself, and it really should be in the library of any student or teacher looking for approachable and beautifully written music for trumpet performance.
