    It sounds like a D-E trill but his tongue is arched so high that the clarity you're used to is not there. He has just finished playing in the altissimo register of the trumpet and is a little tight, which I think is pretty understandable. Also, I don't know anything about the quality of the instrument he's playing. Remember, those were pioneer days for that sort of thing.

    It was because of men such as he and André that we now have piccolos that make our jobs easier. Same thing with Glantz, Vacciano, and Herseth. It was their playing that induced manufacturers to try to improve instruments that players several generations later are enjoying today.

    Scherbaum used a G, A/Bb piccolo depending on the piece. It sounds to me like he is using his A piccolo. The D-Eb and E on this horn were a little flat and he used alternate fingerings for sustained notes.
    Here you can see a picture of the horn:
