    Trumpet Rhapsody

    Being still in the learning stage of articulations, I have been reluctant to post brass or strings. Well, some trumpet tweaking is still needed here, and I am not sure how to go about it. I like the harmonies, but the pianist will have some trouble with a few stretches, not many. In a few cases, one hand has a rest, so it can reach out and swat the out of reach note. A few will require rolling a right hand chord, someting I never really learned to do well. The trumpet has one very difficult leap. Good luck!

    This is probably as close as I will ever get to jazz.

    This is such a well thought-out piece that reflects your unique ingenuity and compositional skill. The diversity of the interplay between trumpet and piano definitely held my ear's interest throughout the entirety of the piece.

    My personal taste runs more towards music that is tonal-centered melodically and harmonically, yet I found myself enjoying your Trumpet Rhapsody tremendously -- a great way to end my evening last night after our long forum "blackout". Thanks for posting it!

    Ah... So it was a blackout.

    Anyways. This piece gave me the image of the night life. And an amature trumpest is trying something cool out in the streets. Very nice impressions.

    Your style always intrigues, Richard; an oddly moving
    piece, but I couldn't for the life of me put it into words.
    I've listened through this twice now with much
    appreciation of it.

    On the trumpet, I'd say you did a fairly good job of it.
    I guess anything can be made better (at least anything
    I've ever rendered surely could) -- but this worked well,
    I think. I also heard nothing in the piano part that a
    reasonably able pianist couldn't handle with very little
    difficulty.

    Very enjoyable composition. I thought the trumpet part could use more dynamic variation and shorter phrasing, especially towards the beginning, but a very enjoyable work.

    Quite true about the dynamics, but sometimes I like rather long phrases, which makes it a bit harder for brass players!
