    Hi, I have been listening to a trumpet transcription of paganini's caprice number 24: YouTube - Alison Balsom - Paganini Caprice No24
    and I'd like to play it myself, but I can't find any sheet music for it anywhere... (not for trumpet, that is)
    and I have totally zero skills in writing it myself :)

    does anyone have the sheet music to this peace, or does anyone know where to get it?

    There is nothing dishonourable about playing it "as is" - one step down from concert pitch. It still has enough high notes to impress, but gives at least a bit more reserve.

    Start on YOUR A

    @ tpetplyr: that was exacly what I was looking for, thank you.

    @ rowuk: you are right, but I'm not a professional musician. those high notes are REALLY high for an amateur musician like me.

    I'll just play through them all, and pick the one I like most.
