arranged by Rob Roy McGregor for trumpet with brass quintet
Sonata for Trumpet in D
This was originally for Trumpet and Strings. It has been freely arranged by Rob Roy McGregor for Solo Trumpet with Brass Quintet (six players total). An introduction has been added to the first movement. The second movement now has melodic invention in the Solo and quintet parts added in the style the original continuo player might have supplied. The third movement contains ornamentation on the repeats with ample dialogue between the solo and the quintet trumpets.
It works really well and is a lot easier than getting a string orchestra together! The Solo part is for D trumpet - piccolo in 'A' works well, the first trumpet part in the quintet is for 'D' trumpet, the second for 'C' trumpet.
