    Vassily Brandt (1869- 1923)
    Concert Piece n° 2, op. 12
    Ed. IMC
    German trumpet player who emigrated to Russia, Vassily Brandt is mainly known for his 34 Etudes for trumpet, product of his teaching experience at the Moscow Conservatory. Supplement to la Pièce de Concert n°1, these works display particularly the soloist’s musicality and his sense of phrasing, after which he sets free a virtuoso energy in a brilliant and unexpected final.

    Henri Tomasi (1901- 1971)
    Triptyque
    Ed. Leduc
    Most prolific composer and conducter, drawing his inspiration from his mediterranean origins and his interest in ethnical music, Henri Tomasi became successful beginning of the 30’. These three pieces, extracts from Six études pour trompette seule, were composed in 1955, after the famous concerto for trumpet composed in1948, which got him close to the instrument.

    Georges Enesco (1881- 1955)
    Légende
    Ed. Enoch
    Enesco, was born in Rumania and was an eminent violinist and teacher. He went to Gabriel Fauré’s class, and composed this Legend in Paris, in 1904. It is conceived in an ample rhapsodic movement, which combines lyrism full of simplicity and flamboyant soarings, restless and dramatic. The intimist dialogue between the two instruments ends with a contemplating dream.

    Arthur Honegger (1892- 1955)
    Intrada, H. 193.
    Ed. Salabert
    Member of the Groupe des Six, Arthur Honegger is one of the important names of French neoclassicism. Intrada, specially written for trumpet and piano was composed in 1947 for the Geneva International Competition. That is to say a few years after the Liberation as well as his Symphony n°2 for strings and trumpet ad libitum (A940-41), a cry full of distress and hope during the german occupation. The pugnacious spirit linked to the trumpet is expressed fully in a short and impish piece, and seems to ignore the doleful period.

    Karol Beffa (né en 1973)
    Subway (world premiere)
    This composer comes from the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Paris CNSM. Karol Beffa won the Lili and Nadia Boulanger competition and was finalist at the International Composing Competition set in Prades in 2005 and 2007. Very much inspired by music of today such as funk, blues or techno, Subway is set in agitation and movement, both witnesses of today’s world. It starts off discreetly, the energy coming simultaneously from the trumpet and the piano ; and then opens up progressively, the pressure rising and decreasing until the final explosion.

    Raymond Gallois Montbrun (1918 – 1994)
    Sarabande et Final
    Ed. Leduc
    Gallois Monbrun was a violinist and a composer. He won the “Prix de Rome” in 1944. After having been an international soloist as well as a teacher, he directed the Paris CNSM from 1963 to 1984 and composed this work for the 1949 competition. This piece is the XXth century follow-up of Georges Enesco’s Légende which was a start to trumpet’s repertory : a proper chamber music piece. It begins with the first movement, declamatory and grand ; followed by the second part in which both players complement and back each other up.

    Thierry Escaich (né en 1965)
    Tanz Fantasie
    Ed. BillaudotThe piece was written for the final of the International competition of trumpet in MarneueKirchen (Germany), in a version for piano and trumpet (1997), which was then transcribed shortly after to organ and trumpet. Once again we find this dancing atmosphere , with its irregular metric, continually renewed, based on the alternation of a pattern of repeated notes, and a more lyrical melodic phrase. The entire dance is preceded by an introduction like a question in which the theme material gives birth via short sequences punctuated with silences.

    Alexander Goedicke (1877- 1957)
    Concert Etude, op. 49
    Ed. Brass Press
    Russian pianist, composer and teacher, Alexander Goedicke won at the age of 23, the Rubinstein composition award, of the International Vienna competition ; after which he was appointed piano and organ professor at the Tchaïkovsky Conservatory in Moscow. It is in 1948 that he composes this piece of bravery, charismatic and tricky, having already dedicated a concerto to the trumpet in 1930.

    Jean Baptiste Arban (1825- 1889)
    Le Carnaval de Venise (Thème et Variations)
    Ed. Fischer
    Considered as the most brilliant horn player of his time, author of la Grande méthode Complète for the cornet, Jean-Baptiste Arban is the reference as regards to the modern Ecole de trompette. In these works, which demonstrate how he renewed the art of this instrument, he pushes the limits of technical skill, to reach an exhaustive overview of the yet unsuspected resources.

    Camille Saint Saëns (1835- 1921)
    Le Cygne
    Ed. Marc Reift
    The only piece, part of the Carnaval de animaux, for which Saint-Saëns allowed a public exhibition during his living years, is a melancholic ode, originally composed for an unusual chamber ensemble (two pianos, a string quintet, a flute and a clarinet). This transcription for the bugle enables to appreciate here, the stunning virtuosity characteristic of the instrument, plus a mighty and muffled sound, which emphasizes the turns and twists of the melody line.
