Rondino Arietta Alla Marcia
Written in 1988, the three movements that make up this Little Suite show different characteristicsand expression.
The first movement,Rondino, features a lively solo part in syncopated rhythm, the piano adding a sustained harmonic background, although it does occasionally join in the rhythmic fun.The trumpet sounds quite brilliant from time to time and can be heard playing several passages of triple tongueing.
Secondly, more gentle music in the Arietta. This time the piano is entirely accompanying, although in no way subordinate, whilst the solo weaves a lyrical melody that sounds clearly through the chordal texture giving the music an almost pastoral quality.
The Suite ends with a brisk Alla Marcia. Fanfares and march rhythms predominate and both instruments play an equal role in propelling the music to its final cadence.
