Considered as one of the hardest works for solo Trombone, Piece in Eb minor by Joseph Guy Ropartz is a mix of Romantic and Impressionist influences. This piece requires a strong endurance: the second part starting after the half of the first page shows the hardest run, when most players would already start lacking of endurance!
Great piece for recitals and exams for advanced players, it will be beneficial to strengthen your breathing abilities while playing.
