Pièce Concertante, Op.27 for Trombone and Piano is a piece by Carlos Salzédo written for the Paris Conservatoire contest. Great to demonstrate all the skills acquired by the player, this piece is difficult (7°) and requires an advanced level to be played perfectly.
Quite slow during the first section, the second part of the piece features some faster sections that are more syncopated. It requires a good mastering of breathing due to long phrases and liaisons
