    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.

    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.
