    Arrow The Joke

    Here is another trumpet solo in a series I am working on. This is written with Finale 2007. It's a short quick little piece based on the whole tone scale. Enjoy my rendition of:

    William,

    Very nice. It sounds like you had a lot of fun getting through all of the tone scale.

    Neat piece, William -- interesting trumpet figures
    (I'm assuming you're a trumpet player?). Rather
    brusque and acerbically to the point; characteristics
    I appreciate.

    You know, there've been quite a few collections
    of preludes for piano, etc.; and a series of short
    pieces like this for trumpet would surely be in order.

    David,

    Yes, I play the trumpet and have played all my pieces already. You know someone should talk to that composer because some of the parts are 'tricky' -

    I wish I hade the connections to get these pieces in a collection and marketed. I have gotten tired of the 'old war horses' in the trumpet repertoire. GPO has been a gold mine for me, I can now hear how it will sound before it's even put on paper. I am a very auditory composer.

    Gary,

    Thanks for listening, it is a fun piece to play.

    Wonderful piece, Bill!

    The free irregular meters build an interestng deep structure for your Pulcinella-like trumpet melody à la Igor!

    I enjoyed this very much!

    Thanks Mike. Especially thanks for visiting an old link. I am still trying to sell my trumpet solos! Well, we'll see.

    Best regards, Bill
