This piece sounds quite simple, but actually requires quite a bit of musicianship to do well. The interplay of the accompaniment and the solo part does not come through too well in the MIDI sound sample, but in actual performance the accompanist and the soloist can work together to provide a performance lush with emotion.
The piece is written in B major, which in itself can be a challenge. It has a broad range but can be easily managed on a oboe, violin, bassoon, or cello. It would be a much greater challenge on trombone (it is relatively high for a trombone piece) or trumpet or clarinet (in addition to being high, transposition for these instruments puts one in the key of C#).
The accompaniment sounds simple enough, but will also provide a challenge for a developing pianist, both because of the key and because of clef changes in the right hand.
The PDF file contains a score with piano and solo line, an oboe/flute/violin solo part, a clarinet/trumpet solo part, and a bass clef bassoon/cello/trombone solo part.

WE SEEK RECORDINGS TO USE AS DEMOS
The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a recording and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.
BLANKET RECORDING POLICY FOR SHEET MUSIC
Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than www.tributek.com to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as www.tributek.com, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.
A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"
Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."
Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
