Morceau de Concert by J. G. Pennequin was composed in 1907. Initially written for Trumpet and Piano, this arrangement for Cornet and Piano is very melodic and quite challenging for the Cornet part. Quite fast, this very enjoyable work lasts 7 minutes and needs some advanced skills.
The piece, starting by the Piano, shows a continuous exchange between the Cornet and the Piano.
