Hello, fellow trumpet friends. I'm currently preparing for a recital coming up in the next year. My list of pieces includes:
Legend - George Enesco
Trumpet Concerto - Edward Gregson
Quintet No. 3 - Victor Ewald
Paths - Toru Takemitsu
I'm working really hard on the technical portion, but I need help with the "musical" aspect of learning these pieces. There aren't many recordings of a couple of them and because of that I don't have many varied interpretations of the pieces. My question to this forum within the trumpet world, is:
Can anyone tell me any historical information or anything about any of these pieces? Anything about the composers thought-process, imagery, historical significance, ANYTHING would be of great help.
Also, if anyone has any suggestions for recordings, that would be brilliant also. Thank you!
