Composed by Joseph Edouard Barat, Andante Et Allegro is a piece for Trombone and Piano, dedicated to H. Couillaud, a Conservatoire professor. Quite difficult, this piece would be perfect for recitals and contest, and can be played by advanced players.
Starting slowly, the first half of the piece evolves into a Piu vivo part. The second half of the work is a rapid Allegro theme (tempo 144-152), followed by a slower part and the Allegro theme played again “a tempo”, before introducing the close in harmonies.
Joseph Edouard Barat (1882-1963) composed numerous pieces for Wind instruments and Piano accompaniment such as 'Andante and Allegro' or 'Introduction and Dance' among many others.
