Honestly.i tried it. I'm not a rock person past jimi hendrix. Lol
Play what's in your heart, focus on one instrument at a time and if you have to ask which is more rewarding look at it like this: There is not a genre out there that isn't having financial issues.

Sorry for any trouble. You mean for brass ensemble? I want to play solo which obviously affects my decision.
Aren't you the one who was debating between sax and trumpet just a few days ago?
If you want an answer as to which is the more rewarding, all I can say is that it depends how you define being rewarded. What do you define as a reward, musically? Define that and you have your answer.
I want to enjoy it all !!!! But I have to find out more about the classical trumpet music available. For example ao g time ago I saw this post:http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f145...eak-24320.html (Is the trumpet repertoire weak?) that really affected my decision and I did more searching around for trumpet music but didn't find much. I obviously don't know where to look which is another reason. Can you I don't know point me to some great works?
When you say 'great works' do you mean as solos or within the orchestra?
Off the top of my head, pieces written for trumpet as solos are:
Haydn trumpet concerto
Hummell trumpet concerto
Mozart trumpet concerto (Leopold, not Amadeus - his dad)
Arutunian trumpet concerto - more modern and very much a fave of mine. Lovely, almost eerie section with a cup mute in the middle.
Lots of Baroque stuff, such as Brandenburg concerto no2
...there's lots more!
But then again, as a cornettist, originally, I would consider many cornet works to be great.
You really won't be short of music to play, and then again, as Ed says, it doesn't have to have been written for trumpet to play it on a trumpet.
I am sure the others can add a lot more to your list of things to check out.
If you like the trumpet (or any of its derivatives - flugel, cornet) just go with the trumpet! You'll like it! The trumpet says, 'I'm here and I'm loud!' What other instrument can say that?
