Concert Etude by Alexander Godlike and finally, “The Debutante” by Herbert L. Clarke. Unfortunately, the third composition had been cancelled on that day, so we could only hear 4 pieces out of the 5 songs. The structure of the instrument was different. In the first piece there were Just trumpets next to each other and a conductor in the front facing them. In the rest of the piece there was a pianist on the left side and a trumpet in the middle of the stage. The first composition was the “An Overture and Finale” performed by Keith Arbitrators, Amanda Confuses, Kelly Fabian,
Paul Hearer, Matthew Michelin, Cortez Montanan, Angel Ortega, Jose Sanchez, and Nathan Shanghai. The piece started with an up-tempo tune and by Just a few trumpets, and the others have Joined later. When every trumpet Joined the tempo became slower. There were multiple tunes and changing rhythm during this piece but the main theme always came back. The melody was distinct. At the end of this piece they played in a lower pitch and everybody Joined again. The second piece was the Concerto for Trumpet, 1 . Allegro (sonata) originally by Joseph Haydn. The performer’s name was Jose Sanchez. This piece was performed with a piano accompaniment.
The piano started with a nice tempo and then the trumpet followed the exact same rhythm as a response to the piano. It was like talking back to each other, like a conversation which was very enjoyable in my opinion. This was the main theme all over this piece. The tempo changed a several times but always got back to the main tempo. The piece was continuously played as always in a sonata. In the early 19th century the sonata form was defined, from a combination of previous practice and he works of important Classical composers, particularly Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, but composers such as Clementine also.
The third composition was the Concert Etude originally composed by a Russian composer and pianist called Alexander Godlike, performed by Kelly Fabian. This classical piece enlivens the sparse concert repertoire of that instrument. The Concert Etude, opus 49 is a major technical work for Trumpet, played on many recitals, exams and festivals. Alexander Goddess’s Concert Etude is a showpiece that required considerable skill in double-tonguing technique. Being from Russia, Goddess’s harmonies are dense and dramatic, similar to other Russian composers during this time period, such as Dimmit Stochastic and Anton Rubberiest.
This work has two primary themes heard throughout: the first is very rhythmic and the second is much more lyrical. The piece starts immediately with the A theme in the trumpet part. The piano helps outlines the phrases by getting more active at the end, and then at the start of the new period it takes a step back in complexity. Later in the piece the trumpet and piano begin to take turns with Misalignments By Gladiatorial name back to the main, opening theme. This type of changing goes through the entire piece.
The second theme has a half-time feel, established by the half notes in the right hand of the piano. However, the pulse stays the same because of the running eighth notes in the left hand of the piano, while the trumpet melody mimics like the right hand of the piano. This secondary theme does not last long. The trumpet mostly plays in arpeggio. The ending is the softest dynamic in the entire piece. The last composition is “The Debutante”, originally composed by a well-known American ornate player, feature soloist, bandmaster, and composer Herbert L.
Clarke in 1917, this time performed by Amanda Confuses. This is a a-Flat Cornet (Trumpet) solo with piano accompaniment. The Debutante was one of Clacks five most commonly performed solos. This piece is full of technical passages comprised of scales, arpeggios, and multiple tonguing. Two lyrical themes are played freely, and call to mind polite society of the earliest twentieth century. The term “debutante” refers to a young aristocratic woman who has reached adulthood and is introduced to society wrought a formal debut.
The composition starts with a piano solo then the trumpet joins and becomes the main instruments in the piece. Then we can hear a trumpet solo, similar to the piano solo performed in the beginning. Then the two instrument play together in a soft sound. I really liked the last two piece as a referential listener. It was fascinating to watch those students play together. I really like the sound of the piano and the trumpet together. Classical music allows you to experience a range of incredibly strong, sometimes overwhelming emotions.
