Customer Reviews for Trumpet Concerto

This is a great piece to end a recital with. The Dokshizer cadenza is a must, as otherwise the piece just thumps to a halt. But the entire work is accesible, fun to play and builds articulation skills. Once the sequential double tongueing is mastered, this piece doesn't beat the player up like some other major trumpet works, and the slow sections have beautiful melodies.

A challenging piece that's fun and exciting. If you want to play something not so Hummel-ish or Haydn-ish, pick this one! Lots of fun, lots of work.

A crowd pleaser
A wonderful piece. Fun to play and hear. An accompanist's favorite as well.

Good, but becoming overplayed
A very good concerto, definitely a step away from Hummel or Haydn (which EVERYONE freakin' plays all the time). I still like the Alexandra Pakhumutova (sp?) concerto better - similar style and difficulty, and in my opinion just as good, but less played than the Arutunian. I have worked on both concertos, but am only using the Pakhumutova on my recital. Really though, you can't go wrong with either piece.

The greatest solo ever!
It's very challenging for beginning and intermediate players, but if you practice a lot, it sounds amazing!

One of my favorites!
I played this as a sophomore and it's one of my favorites as a trumpet player. Great difficulty level!
