Piece De Concours (1946) by André Chailleux was written for the Paris Conservatoir contest. Lasting 5'25 minutes, this piece for Cornet or Bb Trumpet and Piano is difficult to play and quite slow.
Starting with the Piano on four measures, this work has two distinctive periods: Slow and Allegro. The Piano plays alone during eight or ten measures to emphasise the coming back of the Cornet / Trumpet.
This piece will demonstrate well the skills and technique of the player during a contest, or even a recital.
