Cornet solos such as this will always have a place in our trumpet/cornet history. One of the less know but highly respected composers was Herman Bellstedt. This piece is very typical of the period with triple tonguing, fast runs and sweet melodies. I will continue to showcase this form of music and as we gain support, it is my wish that the cornet will some day regain it’s importance on the music scene.
