    Quatre Variations sur un theme de Dominico Scarlati by Marcel Bitsch.

    It's a real joy to play!

    En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor 2nd movement of Concierto De Aranjuez. I've heard it but have never played it.

    I would have to say the Handel Concerto arranged by Roger Voisin. I have great memories of that piece, which I think was originally written for oboe (I might be wrong). I also love the Mozart and I think this year I'm going to buy a natural trumpet and make an attempt at playing it the way it was originally played.

    My wife and I did that together in a recital, and then I did it with my brother in law. The trumpet part is fine, but you have to be a monster of a singer to pull that one off! What a GREAT PIECE.

    Ewazen Sonata but a close second that I will be performing at my recital next December is the second movement of Ballade, Pastoral and Dance by Ewazen. It's for horn and flute but the horn range is reasonable and I'll be doing it on Flugel. Both are right at the top for me!!

    Hmmm...Tomasi...2nd movement, in particular. (Really love the whole piece, but that movement, at this moment, is really ringing). Lush, rich, dark and lyrical. Such a beautiful melody; the improvised sounding, in-time cadenza-like, descant...man. Nocturne indeed!

    ANIMAL DITTIES 1 & 2

    Love them both. Performed both in my senior recital. I had the best narrator in the world (rest in peace Baby!).
