I went to a very nice recital last night and I heard a piece I had never heard performed live (I had heard Wynton's recorded version of this piece, but not many people play as well as Wynton). The performer on trumpet was pretty good, and the pianist was fantastic, so this was nice. The piece was Rondo for Lifey by Leonard Bernstein. There have been a lot of people ask about difficult solo material for high school and young college age students. I really thought this piece was cute, and for a good high school student looking for something very fun and very challenging to play I thought I'd suggest this piece. For a student that would like to hear a nice recording of this piece Wynton Marsalis has it on his On the Twentieth Century CD.
