In Stock. Henry Purcell was the first English composer to write multiple works for the trumpet. His orchestral writings are filled with interesting trumpet parts but no work is more famous to trumpeters than this Sonata. The manuscript was discovered in 1950 and has been one of the most frequently performed and recorded pieces in the trumpet repertoire. This edition, in the original key of D, allows for performance on natural or piccolo trumpet which makes this useful for masterclass, recital or natural trumpet demonstrations. For a transposed edition (into B-flat) please order BQ25204.
A fairly common practice in the Baroque era was for organists to "borrow" and transcribe orchestral music from themselves or other composers to create spectacular organ solos. J. S. Bach adapted several works by Vivaldi-this particular transcription was originally for solo violin and string orchestra. The brilliant showy solo line interspersed with tutti sections lent itself well to the colours of the organ and now to brass. This is a piccolo trumpet feature with the quintet trumpeters playing running duet lines in support of the soloist. For a transposed edition (into B-flat) please order BQ25205.
