    Wow... this is really some work.. You put quite a bit into it, and it shows. So many examples of excellent technique/articulations/choice of libraries. I can't remember hearing a timpani ending (of 1A) so convincing, and not just the usual timpani motif.

    I am also quite encouraged at the quality of work of everyone here. None of us are kids. I turned 70 on Thanksgiving. I plan/hope/dream of having another 20 years to create music. Time to stop fooling around and get serious about composing.

    I certainly appreciate the nice compliments and I thank you for listening.

    I send late birthday greetings on your 70th year. Compared to my age, you are still just a kid. I will be eighty-five on the 30th of this month. (01/30/2019).

    Hello Larry,

    That was quite a Trumpet Concerto tour de force. And these are just short excerpts?

    Thanks for posting these. Great brass work!

    The un-cut productions total around forty minutes.

    Thanks for listening, my Friend.

    Well, Larry, What I said about the third movement stands here! The entire little concerto shows such a love for the trumpet, its technical en melodic qualities in conversation with the orchestra. I would love to hear it in a real performance. The entire composition breathes joy and spirit so that the performer-soloist can't but enjoy him/herself. Isn't that the ultimate goal of live music?

    Congratulations,
    Jos
