    Sadly, I Dance - Trumpet Solo

    This a piece to be added to my collection of trumpet solos. It is of medium difficulty and was written with Finale 2007 and the Garritan sampled sounds.

    SADLY, I DANCE

    Very nice work, Wrayer!

    There's a noticeable sadness to this arrangement... or perhaps pensive.

    Quite modern, almost pop in style.

    Ordinarily a brass lead may be too harsh for this form, yet it works quite well... Creates an interesting feeling of isolation.


    Nice work!

    This series of trumpet solos is proving a rich vein for
    you, William.

    Particularly the 'A' sections of this... wonderfully expressive,
    emotive writing. The trumpet is so often held heroic or
    bombastic or clarionic -- it's great to hear the emotional
    side of the instrument brought out so well.

    Fine job on this. I sincerely hope this series receive some
    serious attention. I note you've priced the scores very
    conservatively, and one hopes they sell well for you.
    They deserve to!

    My best,

    Jeff - Thanks for listening. I used the dance rhythms to keep the emotion running in the work. I play both classical and jazz trumpet, so I think that comes through in my music.

    David - Thanks as always for your comments. I priced my work to be sold (don't think any of us will make it rich selling music. Mozart died a pauper! So, I don't want to be as good as Mozart!

    Very well done Bill. But I still think it would sound better on clarinet.

    I seldom heard paino and solo trumpet and this is a good piece. Romantic and mellow. It certainly broadens my musical awareness, thank you.

    By the way, Mozart didn't die in poverty, that is a legend. The truth is that he died suddenly and was burried in a sheet, not because he was poor but because this was very common in Vienna (Austria) at the time. His wife lived a good life after his death, later she made money out of his legacy.

    Thanks Raymond - I am so glad you enjoyed the work. The inspiration actually came from hearing train horns at night - they can make an awful wail, but sometimes they can sing a lonesome song.

    As far as Mozart dying rich or poor, the wife made out better than Mozart did!
