about the composers)

Five composers write for solo trumpet and the result is this wonderful collection of 21st century pieces. Each composition stands on it's own merits and are quite different from one and another. Jay Rizzetto commissioned a number of unaccompanied compositions for solo trumpet and Pasquina Publishing has selected five for this collection. This compilation of trumpet solos is dedicated to the memory of Roger Voisin. (23 pages)

by Larry Delinger (
about the composer)

This delightful composition is a clever interplay between the trumpet and narrator. Mr. Delinger, who is one of the premier American composers for the classical stage, brings us an interesting and skillful interaction of a cast of characters; the cat, a bird, a prince, the fox and of course the philosopher. This charming work will delight any audience. It pairs up well with our other publication for trumpet and narrator, Five Poems of Emily Dickinson for Trumpet and Narrator. (7 minutes)

Price: $8.00

by G. PH. Telemann

This new edition of the Twelve Fantasias is bound to become a beloved part of the literature for unaccompanied trumpet. Whether as practice material or performance pieces these striking works are filled with musical expression and creativity. Its no wonder that Telemann was the most popular composer of his time. Each of the fantasies is a multi movement work, expressing Telmann's shear musicality and genius. There's plenty of room here for the performer to interpret and to sing on his /her instrument.

Endorsed by some leading performers and teachers this book is referred to a number of times in Gordon Mathie's The Trumpet Teacher's Guide.
(text is 25 pages)

"Jay Rizzetto's Fifteen Contemporary Etudes is a welcome addition to the trumpet literature and will be a valuable asset to all serious trumpet students. The challenge of complex rhythms, tonalities and intervals will be most beneficial to all instrumentalists. I recommend these etudes very highly."
Roger Voisin
Professor of Music, Boston University
Principal Trumpet, Boston Symphony (retired)

"I have been using Jay Rizzetto's Fifteen Contemporary Etudes and I recommend it to my students. His etudes are very important in the playing of contemporary music and its rhythmic and interval demands."
Joseph Alessi
Professor of Trumpet, California State University, San Francisco
Trumpet, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (retired)

"Fifteen Contemporary Etudes, by Jay Rizzetto, is a challenging collection of solo pieces which will aid in the development of advanced skills for the student and professional trumpet player. Many of these interesting and well written etudes would make an excellent addition to recital programs as unaccompanied solo pieces."
Skip Wagner
Trumpet, San Francisco Ballet Orchestra

"..these studies are far more than an introduction to contemporary performance. Rizzetto's volume fills a welcome spot in contemporary trumpet literature."

for brass instruments
by Glen Allan Swarts

This important trio should be in every ensembles repertoire.

Glen Swart's AN AMERICAN TRIO is a welcome addition to brass trio literature. This well constructed three movement work has influences from the blues, rock and roll and the malambo of the Argentine gauchos. It is both a crowd pleaser as well as a work of considerable substance. This piece is destined to become a classic of the brass trio literature.

Price: $10.00 (tpt/hrn/tbn)

by John Wilbye

A trio for brass and a must for the trio library.

John Wilbye is considered one of the most influential and versatile of Elizabethan madrigalists and these two pieces make it clear why. "O What Shall I Do" and "As Fair As Morn" are both from Wilbye's Second Set of Madrigals published in 1609. These works display his keen understanding of counterpoint and melody and demonstrate how he made such an impact on the music of his day.

Price: $8.00 (tpt/hrn/tbn)

by Lewis Richmond

A suite for Brass quintet in five movements.

This concert suite was commissioned and premiered by the California Brass Quintet on public radio station K.Q.E.D., San Francisco. Mr. Richmond drew his inspiration from nature and the environmental conditions of the earth today. This well written work is tonal throughout and makes use of varied time signatures. The movement's titles indicated its programmatic nature: I The Trumpet Sounds, II The Last Condor, III Convocation of Creatures, IV The Planet Speaks, Prayer and Consecration.

Price: $14.00 (tpt/tpt/hrn/tbn/tba)

by Julius Fucik

One of Pasquina's most popular offerings for brass quintet.

Fucik's marches are among some of America's favorite music for band. In a poll of band conductors, the Florentiner March, subtitled Grand March Italiana, was selected as one of the favorites. The length and content of this piece leads one to believe that like Sousa with his Free Lance March, Fucik seems to have tried to condense an operetta into a march.

Price: $11.00 (tpt/tpt/hrn/tbn/tba)

by David Sprung

A fanfare well suited as a program opener, closer or encore.

If you liked Wilke Renwick's Dance for Brass you'll love this piece! This lively fanfare makes good use of syncopations and time signatures and is both interesting to play and fun to listen to.

Price: $6.00 (tpt/tpt/hrn/tbn/tba)

by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach

Ideal for ceremonial events as well as concert work.

This transcription for brass quintet of the march and trio is based on a manuscript in the library of the Conservatory at Brussels entitled Marcia-Fur die Arche. A suitable choice for processionals and recessionals or as a concert presentation.

Price: $8.00 (tpt/tpt/hrn/tbn/tba)
