Russian doll or Matrushka (sometimes Babushka) is a wooden doll that can be opened and you’ll find a wooden doll in it with a wooden doll in it etc, smaller each time. They often have different faces.

The music here is kind of alike. After the piano intro it every time starts with the same theme but after 4 bars it continues in a different way each of the 5 times it appears. There is a 16 bars solo for trumpet and 14 bars solo for tenor saxophone.

I wrote it in 2006 for my youngest daughter Chrisje.
