Iosif Andriasov’s Concertino for Trumpet is an excellent candidate for study and assimilation into the standard trumpet repertoire. A significant composer of Armenian descent from the former Soviet Union, Andriasov wrote his Concerto for Trumpet in 1960 and dedicated it to Yuri Usov. Timofei Dokshizer performed it on an album released in 1978 under the Melodya label. After immigrating to the United States in 1979, the composer revised the work and retitled it as Concertino for Trumpet in 1995. IMMA Publishing Company in New York made the revised work commercially available in 2001. This paper is presented to increase awareness of this composer and his Concertino. It includes a short review of literature on major works of Soviet trumpet music, a biographical sketch of Andriasov, a discussion of the history and form of his Concertino for Trumpet, and concludes with a detailed discussion of preparation and practice techniques to allow for a successful performance of this piece.
