This piece has a somewhat unusual time signature of 9/8. It has a quick tempo of Allegro. The music is in the key of G major and the total duration is 2 minutes. This music was written as a self-accompanied work, as such the underlying harmonic structure is built into the melody. Some other distinctive features include an abundance of chromatic notes, changes in tempo such as rubato and accelerando, and dramatic fermata.

The trumpet has the highest register in the brass family of musical instruments. It is played by blowing air through closed lips, thus producing a buzzing sound which results in a vibration within the instrument. The vibration is known as a standing wave vibration. Since the late 15th century trumpets have primarily been made from brass tubing, which is bent twice into a rounded oblong shape.

Several types of trumpet exist, the most common being the Bb trumpet which has a tubing length of about 148cm. Modern trumpets have valves which alter the pitch being played, by increasing the length of tubing. A musician who plays a trumpet is known as a trumpet player, or a trumpeter.

Historically trumpets where used as far back as 1500BC. The Egyptian Pharaoh, Tutankhamun, was buried accompanied by silver and bronze trumpets in his grave.
