Alexander Arutunian has passed. He was 91 years old.
Another sad loss for the music world. RIP Alex, many thanks for the music.
RIP. Love that trumpet concerto. Even if it's overplayed, it's far better than Goedick'e Concert Etude, IMO.
What other great works did Arutunian write? In honor of his passing we might as well spread some word about some of his other works.
From Manny, by my request....
Every time I hear Manny Laureano, my first thought is "man what a sound!" Even more so on this piece calling for other qualities than volume or brilliance.
Inspiring and eminently appropriate. Thanks.
Most of us trumpet players have played what we simply call, "the Arutunian". The concerto for trumpet was given to the world in 1950. Here is a link that outlines his life and works.

Thank you for your wonderful music. Rest in peace.
I was playing his concerto couple hours ago. Thank you for the great music, Arutunian. RIP.
