Herbert Lincoln Clarke is truly an icon in Americanmusic, considered by many to be the best andmost famous cornet player of all time. His legacyof superior musicianship and the promulgation ofthe cornet as a means of musical expression arestill evident today. His performance as a soloist forthe famed Sousa and Gilmore bands as well as hisrecordings, methods and solo pieces are a lastingreminder of his musical genius. This collection is atribute to the large contribution that Clarke made tothe solo literature for cornet/trumpet.
Arguably one of the finest musicians of his time and still celebrated as a powerful influencein the history of brass playing, Herbert L. Clarke represents a wonderful, bygoneera when crowds would gather around a park gazebo and admire cornet soloists whocould play almost anything with the dexterity and flair of a virtuoso violinist. Throughhis awe-inspiring playing – fortunately preserved on a number of early Edison recordings– and his numerous technical studies and compositions for solo cornet, he continues tohave an enormous impact on brass playing in every generation that has followed.With this newly compiled volume, we now have a concise resource for all of Mr. Clarke’smost popular cornet solos. Each piece offers the unique opportunity of focusing on virtuallyevery technical aspect of cornet and trumpet playing in the span of one five-minutecomposition. The results are always fun, challenging, and growth-inspiring – the perfectcombination of elements in any musical work. I look forward to using this new collectionas a performer and a teacher and recommend it to all brass players who seek both toentertain their audiences and challenge themselves.— Michael SachsPrincipal Trumpet, The Cleveland OrchestraHead Trumpet Department, The Cleveland Institute of Music.
