Composed by Philippe Gaubert, Cantabile Et Scherzetto is a piece for Bb Cornet and Piano. Written as a contest piece for the Paris Conservatoire, it would brilliantly match the skills of an upper-intermediate Cornet player. The Piano part is also for an equal level.
Published in 1909, this piece is generally thoroughly enjoyed by players and is divided into two parts.
The first part, the cantabile, enables the player to work on their phrasing while the scherzetto is good training for triple tonguing.
Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941) was a French flautist, composer and conductor. He wrote many pieces of chamber music, including three Sonatas for Flute and Piano and some Fantasies.
