!

Rating: Difficult. This was originally a popular solo for oboe and strings. Maurice Andre made a recording of this work for piccolo trumpet and clarinet ensemble. This arrangement for piccolo trumpet and keyboard (organ or piano) has been carefully edited with suggested articulations, dynamics and ornaments. This four movement work would make an excellent recital or recording project. Albinoni's characteristically elegant lyrical melodies are offset by flowing scale passages in the fast movements.

Bach, J.S./Marlatt-Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring (ENP-ST2138)

Rating: Medium. Originally a popular organ solo, this voluntary is a great addition to the solo trumpet repertoire. There is a short chorale prelude played by the organ alone, then the soloist enters playing the very tuneful and grand voluntary. The work can be performed without the prelude or the prelude can be played as a piece by itself. This is a great wedding piece that is sure to take advantage of the acoustics of a church.

This suite is ideal for the developing trumpet player.  Each piece has its own character or mood and this allows for expressive playing as well as brilliant fanfares.  Since the movements are fairly short, this is an excellent set of pieces for performances that are restricted by a time limit such as a church service. This would also make an excellent contest piece to show off the musical capabilities of a young musician.
