This book is a collection of original short pieces for three or four trumpets (and one for two trumpets and trombone or baritone). Some of the pieces can even be performed using more than one player on a part; e.g., the entire trumpet section of your school band might use some of the pieces for special events . As in the other Trumpet Outings volumes, there is a wide and eclectic range of musical styles and moods, from traditional classical through jazz and pop. Here again, the main idea is to have fun exploring many different types of music, and to enjoy the satisfaction of perfecting your ensemble playing!
The Trumpet Outings series was conceived to provide trumpet players of all levels with a large and inclusive musical horizon.
These books provide original etudes and duets inspired by various composers and styles which reflect music history: from Renaissance to Debussy, from Mozart to Jobim, via Bartˇk, Schoenberg, Steve Reich, Jazz, Celtic and other folk music.
Charles Reskin cleverly combines stimulation and entertainment, humor and emotion with professionalism and pedagogy. An excellent preparation for todayĺs eclectic repertory.
