Haynes Brass Instrument Manual (Simon Croft and Andy Taylor) - A 'must have' for all our bookcases. 10 minutes into it and I was planning out my own workshop (in my dreams!). Link is Product: Brass Instrument Manual - so no excuses!
Stocked up on 'lost' music from Classical - Trumpet - Brass - Sheet Music & Songbooks - Musicroom.com :- Hindemith Sonata, Arutunjan Concerto, Enesco Legend, Goedicke Etude, Martinu Sonatine.
Discovered the excellent Editions Marc Reift : and treated myself to Zigeunerweisen (Sarasate arr. Dokshitser) for Bb/C trumpet & piano and (one I will actually be able to play) Dokshitser's Suite pour Trompette Solo "en style de Prokoview" both unaccompanied and Bb trumpet & piano. Never come across this piece before - but tunes by one of my favourite composer's arranged by one of my favourite trumpeters - how good does it get
Not only had I failed to find my trusty Denis Wick 1W despite turning the house upside-down, but it appears that DW no longer make that model . So I consoled myself by ordering a DW 1 and DW 1X from Trumpet Mouthpieces for sale at Low Prices with Expert Advice, Online or the Music Shop in Manchester.
Merry Xmas all, and hope these links help others in dire need of odd stuff at short notice.
