Those are GREAT!
Just keep in mind that the only true comparison between trumpeters is when each is under the direction of the same conductor.
But I think it is quite clear that Longinotti belongs in the class of Glantz and Vacchiano
Very interesting to hear these great players of the past! Can we assume Glantz on the B flat, Vacchiano on the D, and Longinotti on the a picc? To me Glantz seems to be in a big hurry to finish this excerpt, and there are some intonation stickies probably because of the larger instrument. Vacchiano has the fullest sound and makes the grace notes sound almost as if they fall on the beat. Longinotti's sound is very clear on the picc but you can notice the inconsistant breathing spots in the trumpet section. This excerpt is one of the hardest! I'm going to go and practice!
Glantz was under strict orders from Toscanini.
Don't you think Vach is on a C as well as Longinotti
Next week they promenade, voisen too
Glantzis using 2 assistants. Why not? The opening Promendade would be better with 2 players.
Not that anyone young and macho would do it that way. What's the fun in that? Only the old and wise.
John DeLancie didn't like me. After I played it in a brass and ww sectional on a Schilke D (no power in that horn but its ok with a mute)
JDL: It is customary to use an assistant
ME : I don't need one
JDL: Let's do it again
JDL: From the beginning again
ME: OK, sounds good to me
After the 3rd time he believed me.
Now like I said, older and wiser, I use a piccolo.
You were just upholding the trumpet student vs oboe teacher conflict dating all the way back to Gil Johnson vs Marcel Tabuteau.
Back in the days before the piccolo trumpet, the BS days....before Schilke, the D trumpet was the way to go. I still prefer the D on this lick. An assistant was always there to play the repeated C#s.
Vacchiano's mute has that quality I look for in that passage.
For a hot minute, playing the grace note ON the beat was popular.
Krauss played it on the 304 Bach D/Eb.
