  • July 10, 2007 Bernstein's Rondo for Lifey

    For Bb trumpet and piano. This is a bubbly little bon-bon encore piece, written by Bernstein in 1950 as a musical mini-ode to Lifey, a Skye Terrier owned by the composer's friend, actress Judy Holliday. Lasting just over a minute, the Rondo is a frisky little romp...

    with a brief expressive intro followed by the main theme, which features a repeated staccato eighth-note motive. The only tricky spot is a quick mute change just before the last bar. The Rondo for Lifey is a cute, fun little encore piece that is within the abilities of many trumpet players.
