Adagio and Allegro for Trumpet (or Flugelhorn) and Piano

As Music Director of the City of Dresden between 1844-1850, Schumann would have regularly heard the horn virtuoso Josef Rudolph Lewy, principal of the Dresden Opera and one of the finest exponents of the recently developed valve horn. Although there is no evidence to suggest that Lewy is the dedicatee of this work, Schumann’s Adagio and Allegro (1849) is certainly a tour-de-force even for the modern horn: the tender melodies of the Adagio reflects Schumann in "love song" mode, while the Allegro is a movement of ecstatic happiness, its ravishing themes bringing the work to an exuberant close.
