  • October 21, 2011 Great piece

    This is an amazing piece, both for performance and for study. The piano part is insane and is very difficult to line up with the solo part but its not impossible. Enesco Legend is great.

  • July 10, 2007 Enesco's Legend for Trumpet

    I've always liked this piece, one of the classic 20th century recital pieces for trumpet and piano. It's one of those pieces, like Honegger's Intrada, that seems to unfold a whole musical story within a very short length of time. Enesco's slow, haunting introduction is a...

    great vehicle for tone, expression and dynamic range. The stormy and passionate middle section is a bravura display of technical fireworks, including several types of multiple tongueing, chromatic runs and brilliant arpeggios. Each section is briefly reprised, and the piece ends in quiet serenity as it began. The range extends up to high C (c3), and the piece takes around six minutes to play. The music comes with parts in both C and Bb. Romanian master Georges Enesco's Legend is a staple in the repertoire of all advanced trumpeters.

    Just a few years ago I was introduced to this piece from my teacher. After about a few weeks I developed my own interpretation and fell in love with this work. Later I heard the Phil Smith recording of this masterwork. Now, I havn't been able to get this...

    wonderful music out of my head. Truly a must for any trumpet player. This piece is quite demanding on C Trumpet because of the tendancies of the trumpet =/. Wonderful, awesome, and can never be over-extracted musically.

    This is an amazing piece of music. From the slow, melodic beginning to the exciting (and rather demanding) fast sections, this solo is a sure favorite. Truly a "legend", if you will.

  • September 03, 2005 AWESOME

    This is a reeli awesome piece. I'm playin it at my school recital at the end of the year and i just can't stop playin it. Just cos its slow though doesn't mean its easy. The triple tonging in the middle can reeli catch u out if...
