Vassily Brandt: 34 Orchestral Etudes for Trumpet

34 Orchestral Etudes for TrumpetFor more than a century, Vassily Brandt’s etudes have prepared trumpet players to play orchestral standards. This new edition was created to foster renewed awareness of note groupings, sequences, stylistic emphasis, and syncopation. Mark Clodfelter has also proposed transpositions for many of the etudes, utilizing Bb, C, and Eb trumpets. His fresh perspective makes this an indispensable edition for serious students.
