    This is such an amusing video (well I thought it was amusing) that I decided to post it here.

    I have a riddle for you all... why does Vizzutti turn his trumpet upside down in the last variation?

    It is probably the right answer though - he is the consumate showman and that is a great showpiece.
    Why does Trent Austin sometimes do solos with an upside down trumpet?
    Because it looks very cool and always gets a great reaction from the crowd.

    I remember Allen doing a master class at the NYBC some years ago, which opened with him playing from his Carnival of Venus variations. After palying it, he looked up at the crowd and just said, "Any questions?" He is a GREAT showman.
