Manny, I play principal trumpet with a wind ensemble. The question of what is expected of a principal player led me to ask this. I am going to play a concerto with the band. We are also doing a lot of other stuff with trumpet solos. Do I give the other first work away or should I play all the solos. I have enough lip to play everything, but I think this is a good opportunity to give others a chance. Whenever I ask the conductor about this kind of thing, he tells me to make the decision. What would you do?
