About the work
“A trumpet trio that is exciting to play and that makes the most of each person’s individuality and strengths!”
In 2010, I composed this piece for the concert of the trumpet trio I was in.
The trumpet has a limited range, and there are few existing ensemble pieces, and it is difficult to find an original trumpet trio that does not use a piano.
"If this person blows such a phrase..."
As I imagined the faces and tones of each of my friends, kindness, strength, lightness... it was as if the three of us were having a conversation.
On May 22, 2022, when we performed again with new members at the "15th Kyushu Trumpet Festival" sponsored by the Trumpet Association, Mr. Hiroaki Hayasaka, the chairman of the Kansai Trumpet Association, who was a special guest, approached me, and I promised to give he the sheet music.
Mr. Ken'ichi Masakado, a composer who gave me sincere and heartfelt advice on the revision,
Mr. Kouichirou Oguni, who gave me many suggestions and quickly and sincerely completed the music engraving,
Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Nayu Hamano and Asako Miwa for cherishing and enhancing this piece together.
The melody, harmony, and accompaniment can be created with three people, so it's great for an ensemble in a brass band club with a small number of people, or for friends who get along well.
"Trumpet is really fun!"
I hope you can taste the feeling.
Of course, performances on instruments other than trumpets are also welcome.
It is a 3-part, 3-movement format from Tp1 to 3.
It is made so that you can change parts for each movement.
Please choose a part according to your range, the phrase you want to play, and your endurance.
It begins with a gorgeous fanfare, then transitions to a nostalgic phrase, and then a hot melody that will take your heart.
Enjoy the changes in tempo and strength.
The tempo is almost the same, and the image is that the three of them are having a peaceful conversation.
Tp3’s F is low. Please challenge this part, if you think, “I want try it!"
The final attacca immediately enters the third movement.
It is a movement like a roller coaster that has a sense of tension and speed, and ends in a blink of an eye.
The intro, which overlaps one person by one person, is somewhat Marcato so as not to become monotonous. The tempo is fast and difficult, but if you adding dynamics makes the piece clearer.
I would be happy if you could feel both the tension and exhilaration when it was decided.
Trumpet in Bb 1-3
