The Orchestral Trumpet
Michael Sachs, Principal Trumpet of The Cleveland Orchestra since 1988, presents this comprehensive resource for students and professionals alike, including a large selection of standard excerpts from 90 orchestral works, with accompanying commentary, practice techniques, performance tips, and historical perspective. A complete guide for preparation, auditions, and concertizing, "The Orchestral Trumpet" also offers essays on relevant topics such as Baroque and Romantic Period performance practice, and using different keyed instruments. The collection is further enhanced by Sachs’ audio demonstrations of many of the excerpted selections, which total 67 excerpts.
