Maury’s Second Contest Solo is a wonderful piece for intermediate trumpet players. The range stays below written A above the staff (for Bb trumpet or cornet), so you don’t have to worry about squeaking out a high C at the end of the solo. The last page is a feature for double and triple tonguing, so considerable agility and proficiency is required for a successful performance. Overall, this piece is slightly less difficult than most of the Characteristics Studies in the back of the Arban book.
