    In the next few weeks I will be recording a trpt/organ CD. Here's the rep so far:

    Honegger "Intrada"
    Tomasi "Semanie Saint a Cuzco"
    Svoboda "Duo Concerto"
    Hovhaness "Haroutiun" or "Sonata for trumpet and organ"

    I still need to pick another piece though to fill it out. Maybe Eben "Windows".

    What do you think? Any suggestions?

    "Windows" is a nice piece and might be just the piece you need. I may also suggest "The Hollow Men" by Persichetti. I recently performed it with organ and it fits nicely.

    How about Jolivet's Arioso Barocco and Maruis Constant's Alleluias? Both have been recorded less than the Eben and Tomasi pieces, and might make interesting additions to the CD. Another good one is Plog's "4 themes on painting of Edvard Munch".

    Oooo oooooo, I second the Plog "4 Themes". I forgot about that one. It is a goodie.

    How about something slow and beautiful that you can just sing on?

    I have just received a CD from Laurie Gargan (principal trumpet of Singapore Symphony Orchestra) and the pieces that blew me away were not the more technical pieces, but the sheer beauty of tone he produced on a couple of older slow melodies - slow melody playing seems to be becoming a lost art.

    I'm debating between a few things now:

    Tomasi "Semanie Saint a Cuzco" or "Gregorian Variations"

    Ewazen "Prayer and Praise"??

    Hovhaness "Haroutiun"??
