Eugène Bozza's Badinage, meaning banter, is an exciting addition to the trumpeter's repertoire. Exploiting the instrument's potential, Badinage is ideal performance repertoire for intermmediate to advanced level Trumpet players. Born in Nice, Bozza (1905-1991) went on to study at the Paris Conservatoire, winning prizes for the violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. His capability and creativity clearly comes across in his Badinage for Trumpet and Piano through jesting, ascending arpeggio flourishes and energetic staccato call-and-response passages between the Trumpet and Piano. The comic nature of this piece is successfully portrayed meaning Bozza's Badinage is an essential, fun and varied piece for the Trumpet repertoire.
