!

Rating: Difficult. The use of Flugel horns in the ensemble creates a warm accompanying texture under the brilliance of the Piccolo. This solo is not for everyone as it soars up to high Ab's on more than one occasion - in fact it ends on one being held at pp for 3 bars!

Goedicke, A./Marlatt-Concert Etude, Op. 49 (ENP-BQ26233) 2.1.1.0.1. & Solo Trumpet

!
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This is a flashy trumpet solo that is often heard in concert, recital and competition situations. The brisk tempo combined with bursts of double tonguing have made this a popular technical showpiece with trumpet players all over the world. Originally scored for trumpet and piano, the use of a standard brass quintet rather than piano adds a whole new depth and colour to the sound. Now this work is not only a great trumpet solo but an interesting piece of chamber music.

Neruda, J./Marlatt-Concerto For Trumpet (ENP-BQ26241) 2.1.1.0.1. & Solo Trumpet

Rating: Medium-Difficult. Flugel horns are strongly recomended for accompanying the soloist in this arrangement to create a more cohesive quintet sound. 

Ponchielli, A./Bjornes-Concerto For Trumpet (ENP-BQ26234) 2.1.1.0.1. & Solo Trumpet

!

Rating: Medium. This is the ultimate tenor aria and has been arranged here for soloist (trumpet or trombone) and quintet. A solo from the opening, this piece is ideal to show off a guest with the quintet. The original key has been lowered to reduce range extremes and to make this great piece approachable by more ensembles. 

Trad./Marlatt-La Virgin de la Macarena (ENP-BQ24161) 2.1.1.0.1 & Solo Trumpet

!
Larger picture
Rating: Medium-Difficult. This traditional bullfighting song made famous by the great Raphael Mendez features a solo trumpet accompanied by a brass quintet and optional percussion. All the flashy pyrotechnics in the original solo part are present with the supporting sound being a quintet rather than band or orchestra. In setting the tone for this arrangement a short introduction is included which quotes Bizet's Carmen and features a short cadenza and some requisite high notes. A guaranteed audience favourite!

Vivaldi/Marlatt-Concerto for Two Trumpets and Brass (ENP-BQ27273) 3.1.1.0.1

!
Larger picture
Rating: Medium-Difficult. The original string accompaniment has been given to a brass quartet with the remaining trumpet part being performed on flugel horn. Another suggestion is the trombone part be played on euphonium for an even more consistent accompaniment texture. The two solo parts are supplied for C trumpets and piccolos in A. This version is in C concert.
