Also, the Rite of Spring has a muted picc part, if I'm not mistaken.
give that dog a treat!!!!
I asked a local trumpet player, who's played the show two or three times over the years, where he used the picc. He basically said, "wherever it makes things easier!" I liked that advice, so I followed it.
Gee............I only played it about three or four hundred times I opened "Into the Woods" on Broadway.
I was aware of that, and I should have asked you on this forum. Honestly, I figured you would have told me to man up and play all the hard stuff on my C. Inasmuch as it was a budget community theater production and I was also covering the french horn book, I was happy to take any option to make things easier.
About 3 mins. into this video, Lew Soloff plays a jazz solo on piccolo trumpet.

Claudio Roditi has also used a pic. in jazz, and he uses it with a harmon styled mute! On his album "Simpatico", it's the song Piccolo Blues. It's actually pretty cool!
Just found this...no mute, but still cool!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the "Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle" section of "Pictures at an Exhibition". That calls for muted picc also.
