    YouTube - Tine Thing Helseth: Marcello trumpet concerto, 1st mvt.

    Guys I first heard Tine play form a clip posted on another thread. I started YouTube'ng her name and one of the pieces that were reference in "the other thread". I don't get why this is being played on a pic?
    It seems to me it would absolutely rock on a Bb or C trumpet..
    your thoughts?
    .. and for the record ...Tine has a great set of chops

    No, not joking. The valved trumpet wasn't invented for another hundred or so years.

    It was written for a baroque oboe which was even further away from the picc sound than a modern oboe.

    To be honest, I like this tune on the oboe better. Tine does a fine job, the picc is just not my solution for this music.

    Ah yes, ROWUK has a bias towards the oboe, to be sure.;-)

    Actually, it is not so much the oboe per se, it is Marcellos understanding of what the oboe does best.

    I find that the picc - regardless of who plays it, does not have the "character" that many other instruments do. In my opinion, the Marcello sounds better played on a standard Bb or C trumpet than the picc. The character does not make the music, the player does, but the Marcello does not showcase the piccs sonics - it really shows off the innate character of the oboe.

    I have been spending much more time with a cornetto and natural trumpet in recent history. There is so much to learn. So many tonal colors to experience.

    I agree, if it's baroque, don't fix it!
