Spectrum for Trumpet comes with a CD and is a unique collection of 16 contemporary works for trumpet and piano. The 16 pieces included have been specially commissioned from some of today’s leading composers and reflect current compositional trends. They range in difficulty from Grades 1 to 8, so there’s something here for players of all ages and abilities. Spectrum for Trumpet comes with a recording of the 16 pieces, performed by trumpeter John Wallace – compiler of this volume – and pianist Simon Wright. The highly successful Spectrum series was established by ABRSM and Thalia Myers in 1996, and now includes volumes for piano, piano duet, violin, cello, clarinet and string quartet. The aim of the series remains unchanged: to commission some of the finest composers to write pieces of modest length and difficulty, while preserving the essential characteristics of their compositional style.
