for trombone and piano
On Saturday, July 28, 1855, the trombone competition took place at the Conservatoire de Paris. That year, one morning was enough to listen to all the candidates for the reason that is explained by Paul Smith, in the Revue et Gazette musicale: “The whole family of the wind instruments […] had a meeting with a harp in one and the same morning. The war shortened the competition: many pupils had left the classes to follow their regiments in Crimea. Nevertheless, the competition was honorable. ‘The teacher, Antoine Dieppo, presented two students who were rewarded that day: Jean-Baptiste-Frédéric Masset (born 1828) won a first prize while François-Achille-Alfred Dauger (born in 1825) won a second prize.

La minore for tuba, strings and basso continuo
The first and second movements of these concerti are reminiscent of a typical instrumental concerto from the early 18th century. The final movements are usually humorous in character, and contain references to music of the present day, to Swiss folklore, and sometimes even to pop music and jazz. The present Concerto Grosso for Tuba, Strings and Basso Continuo is the sixth concerto in this series. Notable within the final movement, a fugue, is the easily recognizable folk song, Vo Lozärn gäge Wäggis zue [From Lucerne to Weggis]
for cimbalom and symphony orchestra
The musical structures used in the composition are characteristic of the American minimalism in many of their aspects, making the piece more comprehensible even for an audience less familiar with contemporary classical music. Swedish pop music had a strong influence on the direction of chords sequences and the rhythmic ideas of my composition. However, it is important to note that my main purpose was not to make the orchestra play popular or dance music but to explore how the musical elements found in popular music can be integrated into the orchestral sounding.
