Melancholia for Piccolo Trumpet in A and Piano
As recorded by Michael Tunnell on Coronet Recording Company’s compact disc Melancholia, Browning’s work for piccolo trumpet in A and piano is challenging and well worth the effort in preparation. 16th note passages, sometimes all staccato and other times lyrical, are tossed from the trumpet to the piano making this a rhythmically challenging and interesting technique. A virtuoso display for both trumpeter and pianist which helps fill the need for contemporary piccolo trumpet literature.
