Romanze by German composer Gustav Cords is a passionate and lyrical solo for trumpet and piano. The music uses dynamics, harmonic progression, and melodic momentum to create a powerful musical journey.
The range of this piece is between Eb at the bottom of the treble clef staff for Bb trumpet and Bb above the staff. The solo is mostly quarter and eighth notes in a free Andantino tempo, so there is nothing too fast or virtuosic.
