It is true that the repertoire for trumpet and piano, at least original works not transcribed, is not the most immense. The duo formed by Alison Balsom on the trumpet and Tom Poster on the piano still offer us a nice sample of a few pieces originally conceived for this formation: the delicious Sonatine of the incomparable Jean Françaix (composed for a competition of the Conservatoire in 1952, The Sonata of the incomparable Martinu (dating from its North American period, in this case 1956, with strong jazzy influence) as well as the legend of Hindemith (written in 1936) The incomparable Enescu (dedicated in 1906 to the trumpet teacher of the Paris Conservatory Merri Franquin) are excellent examples.
