Zack has melded many of his influences into an entertaining Russian/Jewish/Latin/French concertino that will be
a challenge to high school and college trumpeters alike, but is definitely achievable (if you can double tongue).
Range is fairly moderate though there is one high B. The piece begins with a lush opening statement, then moves to
a brisk main theme. A slow, languid section follows. There is a cadenza and then a rousing restatement of
the main theme which should bring the audience to their feet. Originally written for brass quintet, the arrangement
has been reduced into a piano accompaniment that is not too difficult, but should match the solo in excitement.
