    Entertainment #1 for trumpet and orchestra

    Hi,

    Here is a small entertainment I wrote for trumpet and orchestra. I used GPO4, JABB3 and COMB2 to do this. I tried to use the harmony and the orchestration from the XVIIIth century.

    Let me know what you think about it.

    At least, I hope you will like it.

    Cheers,

    Fred.

    Hi Fred. Cute melody, great drive. It's a nice "divertissement". Your next one could use a bit more complexity in the harmonic development though, perhaps an extra section in a "related" key, or more variation in the orchestration, to add some interest. Looking forward to your next work!

    Nice .. sounds right for the period, though I think the trumpet part would have to have been played an octave higher at this time (before the invention of valves) and the brighter timbre at the higher pitch would sit better with the strings.

    Would be great to hear an updated version if you fancy trying that suggestion out?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your replies

    I'm glad you liked it.

    Here is the same track with played 1 octave up for the trumpet as suggested. Let me know if it sounds more XVIIIth century.

    Hi Fred

    that really works for me!

    The trumpet and strings seem to work together better and really lets the timp stand out when it comes in.

    Great work!

    A delightful little amusement, Fred!

    Very nicely done -- well made, and well rendered.

    I'm quite fond of small, concise statements like this
    that get right to the point; say what they have to
    say, and no more.

    Perhaps you might consider a collection of little
    pieces like this one.

    All the best,



    David
