An excellent, rather subdued minimalistic piece for six B-flat trumpets, flugelhorn, percussion and narrator. The first trumpet part is challenging, otherwise the piece is not difficult. 20th century notation. Excellent 20th century repertoire. Fanfare for Remembrance was commissioned by the Western Michigan University School of Music for the 1987 ITG Conference in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

TRP-063 The Charlier Companion (1) [6] Olcott, J.

Composer: Olcott, James L.
Difficulty: 6
The CHARLIER COMPANION, essentially second trumpet parts to the 36 Etudes Transcendantes of Theo Charlier, evolved from many years of using etudes from the standard pedagogical literature with students and playing 'behind' them to help with conceptions of sound, style, pitch, tempo, and phrase. In my experience, it was quickly found that focus on technique quickly gave way to a much more musical experience. These 36 etudes are fun, challenging, and satisfying by themselves, and can be played and studied as stand-alone works. They are most effective, however, when played as conceived: as duets to the 36 Etudes Transcendantes by Theo Charlier, published by Alphonse Leduc of Paris, France. Individuals may also perform and study these etudes along with the compact disc recording by David Baldwin of the Leduc publication, available through the International Trumpet Guild. Available in printed form only.
ITG Journal, January 2002, page 56:
"...a significant addition to the pedagogical repertoire for trumpet." (As second trumpet parts to the original Charlier), "The Charlier Companion truly excels..." "As stand-alone etudes, these studies are effective in preparing the student for the formidable challenges found in the Charlier." "...excellent reading material, providing a wealth of intervallic, musical, and technical challenges." "...a great resource of teaching, reading, and performance material...an important contribution to the trumpet repertoire and should become a staple of our music libraries."

A very strong and colorful work with the harmonic, melodic, and dynamic color for which Eric Ewazen is so well known; uses interplay between the various players and pairings to excellent effect. Contrasts between fanfaresque and legato playing and loud and soft abound throughout. The tessitura of the first trumpet is at the top of the staff, with high C being the top note. Fun to rehearse because of the smart writing, and the product is very satisfying for both player and audience. An excellent contribution to the genre.

The ARBAN COMPANION, essentially second (duet) parts to the Fourteen Characteristic Studies of Jean Baptiste Arban, evolved from many years of using etudes from the standard pedagogical literature with students and playing ÒbehindÓ them to help with conceptions of sound, style, pitch, tempo, and phrase. In my experience, it was quickly found that focus on technique quickly gave way to a much more musical experience. These 14 etudes are fun, challenging, and satisfying by themselves, and can be played and studied as stand-alone works. They are most effective, however, when played as conceived: as duets to Arban's Fourteen Characteristic Studies, published in almost every rendition of his Conservatory Method.

Trumpet players may also perform and study these etudes along with the compact disc recording by David Baldwin of the Leduc publication, available through the International Trumpet Guild.

Duration: 9 minutes
Difficulty: 5
The second prize winner of the 2004 ITG Composition Contest (solo trumpet w/trumpet ensemble accompaniment) and premiered at the 2004 ITG Conference in Denver, this three-movement work is written for trumpet solo and trumpet ensemble accompaniment. All six parts are for C trumpets (which means that they could all be played on B-flats). All parts have lots of action and independence. Very idiomatic for trumpets but with fresh approaches to interplay, color, and accompaniment. Fanfares, warm melodies, playful rhythms. Movements' names: Crossing the Cuyahoga, The Skyline at Night, and The Emerald Necklace. From the composer: About Cleveland Sketches: The first movement, Crossing the Cuyahoga, is a heroic fanfare depicting the almost overwhelming scene of towering buildings as one crosses the river into Cleveland, Ohio. The serenity of the evening lights of the city as viewed from far away are the inspiration for The Skyline at Night, depicted by a lyrical song on flugelhorn accompanied by sustained notes in the cup-muted trumpet parts. The last movement, The Emerald Necklace, is a depiction of playful activity in the metroparks which surround the entire Cleveland area. - Clint Needham

"...well conceived, easy to execute." "The amount of thought and effort that went into these duets is quite impressive. To this author, the greatest testament would be that although the Small Studies have not been required in my studio, the attractiveness of having this wonderful source as a musical reinforcement (as well as an end of the lesson duet reward) has moved me to change the syllabus for next year.

Number of Trumpets: 8
Key: Bb Major concert
Duration: 3 minutes and 11 seconds
Difficulty: 5
A rather striking and very dramatic work for eight trumpets (also written for five trumpets - see Five Trumpets in this catalogue). This piece has a great deal of rhythmic and melodic counterpoint in very dramatic and harmonically fascinating ways. The juxtaposition of some melodic and expressive content add to the intriguing and exciting aspects of this piece. Intrada Dramatic has a decided "wow" factor without being overly difficult. It can be used as an extremely impressive opener or for a very special one-piece occasion. (Recorded by Tromba Mundi).
ITG Journal, October 2008, page 88:
"...a piece that lives up to its title....(Entrada Dramatica) is a remarkable, well written work that is sure to become a standard in the trumpet ensemble literature."

Key: Eb Major concert
Duration: 4 minutes
Difficulty: 5
Mambo Beat, written in the mid 1950's, was originally an instrumental showcase labeled as "mambo jazz" and has been updated starting at the solo section to reflect the more modern salsa feel. Every effort has been made to make this transcription/arrangement as authentic as possible, giving written examples of the authentic styles for the rhythm section. The piano part is written with stylistic patterns. The bass part should be read as written. The latin percussion instruments (patterns are given as examples) heighten the authenticity of the work but are not necessary. The guitar part is supplemental. The recording is of the beginning of the piece and does not reflect the salsa section, which carries the arrangement to the end. (see the piano part in the written example).

TRP-110 Woolloomooloo Overserved (7) [6] Haskell, J.

Composer: Haskell, Jeffrey
Number of Trumpets: 7
Accompaniment: Piano, bass, drums
Duration: 9 minutes
Difficulty: 6
Commissioned by Ed Reid for the University of Arizona's performance at the ITG conference in Australia in 2010 (the recording is of that performance), this piece is in three movements: Getting In, Whilst There, and Recovery and Out. The first movement is reminiscent of Paris in the 30's, the second is a slow dirty blues, the third a medium up tempo swing duet. Each movement can be played separately, but it is fun to play the piece as a set. Of the work, the composer writes, "Woolloomooloo is an eastern suburb of Sydney, Australia, and the name may derive from the Aboriginal pronunciation of windmill or even place of plenty. The town, having recently gone through extensive gentrification, doesn't look like it did in the past. When it was first nicknamed "The Loo," it was a rough-and-tumble working class district of New South Wales. Filled with bars, it was often a destination of those who sought to drink on the cheap. This work describes the trip from Sydney to inside "The Loo," party time, and leaving the scene in a good mood."

A beautiful transcription of of this standard Baroque show stopper. The original trumpet part is preserved with the intertwining lines beautifully juxtaposed. Sounds great. The difficulty grade of 7 is only because of the piccolo trumpet part. Otherwise it would be a grade 5. Highly recommended.

Very effective and quite exciting, with the famous lines heard in wonderful, intertwisting counterpoint. Almost an "8" in its complexity and demands, but it is worth it!

A beautiful rendition of this slow, very introspective Handel classic (title translates as "Let Me Weep"). Simple, but demanding because of control, style, phrase, and pitch considerations. A real change-of-pace from the usual trumpet ensemble fare.

TRP-140 Three for Four (4) [2] Horven, V. (Olcott)

Composer: Horven, Vera
Arranger: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 4
Duration: 5 minutes
Difficulty: 2
Composed for (and perfect for) junior high trumpeters, these three short pieces for four players (Tango, Andante, and Allegro, in keys of written A minor, E minor, and F) feature engaging melodies with attractive harmonies, accompaniment figures, and little challenges for everyone. Well edited, including articulations and breath marks. The second and third works were first introduced as a capella melodies in 2002 in "Twenty-one Norwegian Trumpet Soli," published by Wolfgang G. Haas-Musikverlag Koln e. K., and are used here by permission. The first melody and the arrangements for all three quartets are by James Olcott. NOTE: because of the 16th notes, this work could be put in grade 3, but the lines are rudimentary enough to keep it as a grade 2 (see examples by clicking the treble clef next to the microphones).

TRP-141 Three Intradas for Three Trumpets and Piano (3) [6] Kimmell, J.

Accompaniment: piano
Difficulty: 6
Relatively short (2.5, 2, and 2.25 minutes respectively), modernesque pieces with lots of interesting lines, interplay and harmonies. The two outer movements are with piano, the middle acapella. The recordings, which represents the first two movements, will give you an excellent idea of Kimmell's innovative writing.

Composer: Verdi, Giuseppe

Number of Trumpets: 4
Key: F Major concert
Duration: 5 minutes and 14 seconds

Edited by James Olcott. Originally a work for female choir. Beautiful, slow and dramatic. Great for work on phrase, control, intonation, blend, and the choral style in general. Works great with four, but is most effective with more than one person on a part. The recording is by the Washington State University Trumpet Ensemble under the direction of David Turnbull.
