    Manny and other active players- I have begun working on this excerpt recently.

    Which horn do you usually use on this? Bb, C or do you use a D? (Also, what factors do you consider to help you make your horn choice?)

    Any tips? (Tempo ranges would be helpful!)


    Thanks!

    Glenn,

    At this point in my career, the C trumpet is my choice for 99% of the repertoire, Tchaikovsky 6th included. Having said that, the D is a very nice choice especially for endurance issues in the 3rd movement.
