    I read this new book ... fantastic. :thumbsup:

    The Trumpet Book


    the English edition of the celebrated La Tromba, written by the Italian trumpet virtuoso Gabriele Cassone. It is a thoroughly researched, beautifully illustrated volume by one of the great performers of our time. With more than 400 colour photos and musical examples, the book offers a comprehensive history of the instrument and survey of its repertoire. Cassone provides an insider’s view of trumpet technique, from Baroque performance practice to extended techniques in contemporary music.

    The companion CD includes brilliant performances (by Cassone) of masterworks on historical and modern instruments: the Trumpet Book CD is therefore an audio portrait of the evolution of the trumpet and its repertoire, with recordings from the Baroque to Contemporary eras, using five different instruments - natural trumpet, keyed trumpet, alto trumpet in D, cornet, and modern C trumpet. This companion disc, compiled exclusively for readers of The Trumpet Book, includes studio and live previously unreleased recordings, or not commercially available before.

    The book surveys the broad range of musical literature for the trumpet, with 50 musical examples from the repertoire of the 16th through the 21st centuries.

    An expanded section on jazz covers the main styles and important players of the genre.
    Written for players and listeners alike,

    The Trumpet Book should have its place in every music lover’s library:

    very few books can stand comparison!

    If I didn't know better, I'd guess you have a vested interest. Very few regular posters would quote the number of glossy photos in a post. If you are trying to drum up business then call a spade a shovel and tell us who you really are or what your involvement is. Plenty of guys present their products on this site. It's not cricket to pass things off in the third person. I apologise if I am wrong but I have a hunch....
    The fact that this is your first post makes me more suspicious.

    I have to admit, it sounds interesting. How much are you selling the book for? Can I buy it through you or can I get it on Amazon?

    Normally I would move this into the marketplace, but this IS so exciting that I think that we will leave it here for now. Gabriele is as good as they get and I am sure that any praise will be far below what this book is really worth.

    This is serious trumpeting from a serious trumpeter. It is not a guaranteed double c in 2 weeks or limitless endurance. It is solid, established pedagogy!

    I've got that book and am going through it very slowly, enjoying all the history and research that Gabriele put into writing that book. The pictures are fantastic and while the quality of the printing is one of the things which makes the book so expensive, it is definitely worth it, and I agree with Trent that it is a must for all of us.

    And I have no vested interest in the book, as I know Trent doesn't either.:-)

    As I suspected. Trumpetpaul has only posted 3 times in total, all in thris thread. Better than a month has past. Waited to see if he would post in other threads.Hasn't happened. Go figure......
    I believe my original suspicions are confirmed.Can't stand it when people are not up front. If you have a vested interest then be up front and let people know.
