Description

For trumpet in C or B-flat

To this day, Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) remains one of the most prolific composers for wind instruments, despite being a violinist himself. His Caprice No. 2 for Trumpet with Piano accompaniment is no exception to the composer's success. During his studies at the Paris Conservatoire, Bozza won prizes for Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. He then conducted the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique and became Head of the Conservatoire in Valenciennes, whilst remaining a prominent composer.

Composed in 1978, Bozza's Caprice No. 2 addresses advanced aspects of the Trumpet, including complex rhythms, exploited tonalilty and articulation. As music educationalist, Paul Griffiths has written of Bozza's compositions, "His works reveal melodic fluency, elegance of structure and a consistenly sensitive concern of instrumental capabilities."
