Sample Recordings

 

Welcome Guests!

 

The recordings below sample a wide array of recent performances and commercial recordings for your review. These recordings represent 350 years of trumpet literature from all genres and include music influenced from three continents. In addition, the recordings were selected to demonstrate mastery of all pitch classes of trumpets: authentic baroque period natural trumpet in D (no valves), trumpet in Bb, trumpet in C, trumpet in Eb, piccolo trumpet in A, and piccolo trumpet in Bb. The final tracks are from non-western "classical" repertoire: commercial, "pops", world music and bluegrass.

For your convenience, you may make your selections by composer, title, venue, genre, or instrumentation.
