[Printed Version] Fourth Book of Trumpet Solos – this further new release for 2020 from John Wallace and John Miller, offers an exciting collection of ‘classic’ and contemporary solos, ideal for the more developed player at Grades 4-6 level. Each solo book is provided with live performance backing tracks (with/without soloist and at 75% tempo).
A printed piano accompaniment book is also available separately or through our ‘complete package’ offer.
This collection presents arrangements which are carefully counter-balanced by bespoke compositions and progressively sequenced, reflecting the technical and musical experience equivalent to ABRSM or Trinity College London, Grades 4-6.
Includes 12 melodies from a widespread selection of influential composers, including Gershwin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mussorgsky, Schumann, Sullivan, De Falla, Mouret, Berlioz, Mahler and Wallace. The book also comes with a collection of of live performance backing tracks (piano accompaniment with and without soloist) to make rehearsal time even more engaging. We even include a special piano accompaniment track which plays at 75% tempo to support the player as they learn the pieces.
The live performance audio backing-tracks help to enhance the learning process, enabling the player to fully embrace the music in context and through the guidance of the interpretation of the works by recording soloist, Daniel de Gruchy-Lambert.
Following the international success of the first two collections (First Book of Trumpet Solos and Second Book of Trumpet Solos), and the recent release of the Third Book of Trumpet Solos, this new addition continues to expand access to interesting and adventurous musical content for the developing player.
This Fourth Book of Trumpet Solos recognises in its sub-title the enduring popularity of the cornet and flugelhorn in Great Britain and their renaissance in those parts of Europe and the Nordic Countries which have embraced the British Brass Band model. It has therefore been carefully crafted to be ideal for trumpet, cornet or flugel players.
The professional careers of John Wallace and John Miller collectively span more than a 100 years, and they believe this collection of solos will provide you, your teacher and your peers with something engaging to enjoy, practice and perform – supporting a new pathway of your musical journey.
