  • November 18, 2008 Great piece, very challenging

    Superb and very fun piece and very easy to read, unlike many other versions of this piece out there. Definitely for the advanced player or can be used as a practice piece for the rising student. The best "show piece" for the trumpet out there.

  • July 13, 2005 Not the original piano accompaniment

    Be aware, this version "revised and rearranged" by Leidzen is not at all the same as the original Arban version. The trumpet part is the same, but the accompaniment has been completely redone, and the introduction is a different length. If that matters to you, avoid this edition.

  • July 02, 2002 Incredible!

    This solo is one of the most famous works for trumpet that there is. It is very technically demanding but with hard work it can be one of the greatest crowd pleasers you ever perform. I find it a great source for practice and keeping up my technique. I strongly...

    recommend this to any trumpet player who is willing to work hard and go the distance. Good Luck!

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 06, 2001 Soloists Dream

    After getting the Arban and looking at this piece my very first thoughts were that I would never play this piece. However, after careful practice, this must be one of the most popular and most rewarding of Cornet solos. Though technically very difficult in places, especially the final variation, after...

    many hours of practice it is not, in fact, as hard as first thought. Arban has arranged it and the variations beautifully with plenty of difficulties. I particularly found the triple tonguing variation very tiring at first, and still do unless practiced regularly. Though it is a very difficult piece, if taken slowly at first and built up there is plenty of enjoyment for the player and, later, the audience in this very rewarding solo.
