    Greetings,

    I am looking for practice accompaniment for some standard trumpet tunes. Mainly the Haydn and Hummel concertos. I looked at the music minus one site, and did not have much luck. If anyone can direct me to some good recordings to practice with, that would be great.

    Take a look around this site - Trumpet & Midi

    They have some Midis to practice with but not exactly what you're looking for...

    SmartMusic seems to be the way to go. Smartmusic.com is where to check them out. Yamaha bought the Vivace Intelligent Accompanist from the Coda company that also makes Finale. They have most of the standard trumpet literature and it is only $30 for a year subscription. You need to have a microphone and there are other goodies you can add on as well. I'll let you go and it out and see if this what you were looking for. Hope this helps!

    I picked up a couple of music-minus-one things for trumpet and was pretty disappointed. My biggest complaint was tempo - while I think that it's great to have ebb and flow in a piece of music, when a person is trying to play to a recording and they can't see the conductor to know what's coming, it makes it pretty difficult to keep things tight with the recording.

    Just look online for music-minus-one stuff - there is plenty of it out there for most of the well known trumpet works.

    With Music Minus One or the like, you learn to FOLLOW, not lead. If you are only playing along for fun, I guess that is not too big of a problem. It is a desaster if you want to really solo.

    I'm talking about stuff like the Vivalid concerto for two trumpets where there is such sudden variance in tempos that you can't follow, which is kind of beside the point since for the style it shouldn't move that much anyway. The version I have is terrible - unusable for a real performance. Seriously, why didn't they at least try to use a metronome with it?
