    "Trumpet Concerto" (Mov. III)

    All,

    I wrote this for a virtuoso performer.

    This is an excerpt from the third movement of my "Trumpet Concerto". It does not follow the standard concerto format. The unedited movement is around twelve minutes in length. This excerpt is 03:47.

    Regards,

    For a virtuoso performer, actually several such critters, from a virtuoso composer. Now, that makes for a fun, lively match. And as often happens when I start the day by clicking Play on one of your MP3s, Larry, you've sure helped to wake me up! Thanks!

    Hi Larry,

    I heard that the virtual trumpet player just called his virtual union rep demanding virtual double-time for performing this concerto .

    Enjoyed the listen and it's always fun to hear music composed to the brink (and beyond) of normal performance endurance. This was something Frank Zappa did often ... and why he always had 1st-call studio musicians play his very difficult compositions/arrangements while he usually just played guitar fills and solos here and there. It's good to be king!

    Thanks for posting this,

    Frank
