This unique duet collection of Classical Repertoire by Michael Sachs, Principal Trumpet of The Cleveland Orchestra, and Joseph Alessi, Principal Trombone of The New York Philharmonic, offers students and professionals the opportunity to hone their ensemble skills in a variety of ways. The duos can be played by trumpet and trombone, two trumpets, or by two trombones with either instrument able to play top or bottom partsthe ultimate in ensemble flexibility for study or performance. Edited in detail and fleshed out for easy reading, these duets should be a part of every brass players library.
Throughout history, the trumpet and trombone have always enjoyed a close partnership. From the days of cornettos and sackbuts to the modern instruments we play today, trumpeters and trombonists continue to share a special musical bond. In the orchestral literature, there is a great deal of interplay between the trumpet and trombone, and the resulting texture is always distinctive. Our inspiration for this collaboration was a mutual agreement that there was, however, a lack of fine music available for trumpet and trombone. Performing duets is probably one of the best ways for you as a musician to listen and work on your intonation and phrasing as you interact with the colleague playing next to you. This will also sharpen your ability to identify who has the melody and, therefore, to determine when to yield to that player while remembering the maxim that melody always leads. One unique aspect of this collection is our duet format, which provides for a variety of instrumental combinations. The duos can be played with two trumpets, two trombones, or one of each. In addition, the trumpet or the trombone can play either the top or the bottom part of each piece. This mix-andmatch flexibility offers a wide range of technical challenges that should give each player the maximum benefit of playing in a range of keys, registers, and difficulty levels, providing an equal musical challenge in each part so that both players are stretched and engaged. You may even want to record yourself playing one part and perform duets with yourself. Throughout these pieces, there are a number of passages where brackets are shown next to the staff. These brackets indicate the option of taking a particular passage up or down an octave depending on the trumpet/trombone combination being used. This is meant to assist in the blend of textures and enhance both the facility and the voicing in each different instrumental scenario. One can also switch the line being played in repeated sections for added interest. Dynamics and articulation markings were typically sparse in most original manuscripts of the pieces included in this book. Because of this, we added little in the way of musical editing and opted to leave dynamic and phrasing choices primarily to the performer. We have been good friends for many years and have often wished that there were more literature for trumpet and trombone for study, performance, or just for casual reading. We had a great time assembling this collection and hope that this will help create many future trumpet and trombone partnerships!

  • June 03, 2013 Great Trumpet/Trombone Duet

    I bought this for trumpet and for trombone so that my husband and I can play duets together. I wanted something that did not need piano accompaniment. This was perfect! Wonderful arrangements! Very challenging for both of us as comeback players who quit playing after high school (40ish years ago...

    ) then began again less than 2 years ago. We do not tire of the music. It has made us better, forcing us to improve breath control, range, intonation and blend. The pieces are lovely as trumpet trombone duet; the lovely music always surprises people.. in a good way! Be aware that some of the trumpet pieces are in concert C, not for Bb trumpet. That works fine if used by two Bb trumpets, but doesn't work as a duet with trombone. That's OK, I'll just transpose them when I really need something new, but the buyer should clearly understand that 10 of the 14 pieces in this book are written for trumpets in C, not Bb Trumpets.

  • April 30, 2012 14 Duets for Trumpet

    Saw on YouTube a young trumpet player perform Fantasia No.2 from Telemann. Was quite impressed and looked for the book in The Netherlands. Couldn't find it, so I turned to Sheet Music Plus. Great price, unbelievably cheap postage, and I received the book after the agreed six weeks...

    , unscratched, no folds, in great condition. I love to play from this book, first performance on my school with one of my pupils soon. Of course: Fantasia No. 2 ! :-)
