Poulenc was always fond of wind instruments. This is one of a series of three early little Sonatas that Poulenc later dismissed as "entertainment". Written in 1922 and revised in 1945. It is a brief work, about eight minutes long, in which the voice of the trumpet is dominant most of the time. It comprises three movements. The first, Allegro moderato, is a joyful melody that resembles a children's tune. The second, Andante, is a slower and vaguely melancholic air. In the third, Rondeau (animé), we are back in the world of the first movement, although the joyousness is clouded by minor mode inflections. [Allmusic.com]
