Composed by Roger Boutry, Trompetunia is a piece for C or Bb Trumpet and Piano accompaniment. Quite difficult, it is ideal for upper-intermediate levels and above.
Starting with an introduction “Allegro”, this melodious piece is divided into three main parts: “Andantino”, “Allegro Vivace” and “Allegretto”. The first part features a Cadenza, while the second, more lyrical, includes some sections with the sourdine. The last part is more syncopated and more rhythmic before the harmonious finale.
