    Elegy for Trumpet - COMPLETED

    This is the completed solo for Trumpet and Piano. It is in the French style, a style I practiced for years while learning trumpet from Harry Herforth (Cleveland's premiere trumpet teacher) who is turning 90 this week. Live long and prosper Harry!

    Elegy for Trumpet

    I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to comment.

    Wonderful start. This would be fun to play. *Very* idiomatically written for the trumpet (as it should be with someone as knowledgeable as you writing it) and I love the French influence. Come back with more!

    Very nice piece and interpretation! I am sure that Harry would approve.

    I am listening to it for the third or fourth time now. The format (trumpet sonata in french style) and especially this piece appeal very much to me (am I using this words right?)

    How did you do these interesting half-muted passages?

    I think you did a wonderful job by this composition which will hopefully be played live a lot and also with this very convincing rendition.

    Guten Tag Hannes,

    Yes, Ich verstehe. I am glad you enjoyed the work. The half-muted sections were created by using dynamics and articulation markings. I really would like to get a GPO trumpet sound that is muted, but do not know if it exists in Finale.

    I am planning to personally play this piece with a friend accompanist so that I can give the piece as a present to my former trumpet teacher and mentor, Harry Herforth.

    Thank you for listening.

    I am assuming that you are using the Finale supplied GPO. I checked the trumpets and there are no controls for muting that I could see. In the full GPO there are.

    Thanks Gary. I did some manual reading after the post and discovered the same. (Won't wonders ever cease if you read the manual). Yes I am using Finale's GPO. I have to wait until my pockets get filled before buying the Full GPO. (Starving musician, you know)

    I have re-done the concluding bars of the piece and I thin it sounds more conclusive. (last 10 secs or so). If anyone would care to listen and compare I would appreciate your thouhts.

    The newer version is at: http://www.esnips.com/doc/089780fb-7...cea/Elegy2.mp3

    Thanks

    Listened to the revised version, William.

    Strong piece, and very well written (as usual);
    I'd love to hear this one live... that trumpet
    writing shines.

    My best,

    Thanks all, I've been in a writing frenzy as of late. I have been asked to do an 8th movement to the Planets: Requiem for a Planet (Pluto). It will be performed this Spring a long with the complete Holst Suite.
