These short concert etudes for trumpet were composed especially for Philip Smith, Principal Trumpet of the New York Philharmonic. A beautifully recorded CD lets you study this great master's interpretations as you perfect your own playing. It is such a treat to hear Philip Smith's artistry, and there is nothing better than a great example for helping musicians improve! This publication belongs in every private trumpet lesson studio and on each serious player's personal library shelves. (Featured composers: James Barnes, Stephen Bulla, Douglas Court, James Curnow, Timothy Johnson, James L. Hosay, Kevin Norbury, Philip Sparke, Joseph Turrin, and Allen Vizzutti.). Grades 3 - 6.
