    This is quality.

    If you think that's quality (and boy is it!) have a listen to his own version of Carnival of Venice on his CD, with piano. It is insane. Last varie a bit like Arban's but down and up 2 or 3 octaves on alternate bars - incredible.

    And that's not the hard bit.... :)

    Check out the Trumpet Summit CD he recorded with Bobby Shew and Vince DeMartino... some stunning playing on that too.

    Nice. Thought the double-C in the final cadenza was a bit sharp; overblowing, perhaps ... ?

    [Runs and hides]

    ... Mind you, I think I'd quite like to be capable of overblowing on a double-C ...

    Incredible! Nice trick turing the trumpet around and upside down lol! I'll try that with my euph next time I play this!

    I (being a bit sad) tried that upside down thing while warming up before last night's rehearsal.......all I did was hurt the top of my fingers. A lot:oops: .And get very wrong notes!

    Must have very light valves and springs!

    Think if you try it on euph you might break your fingers......

    The Carnival de Venus is impossible, Someone emailed me the mp3 and the sheet music and I can't even get near playing most of it!

    Of course...I'm not condoning the illegal copying and sharing of material...I was sent it without even asking.....

    Check out sandoval playing 'A night in tunisia' on the same site - as recommended by DaveQ!

    I heard him play that piece live a couple of years ago - he handed out copies of the part beforehand so that people could "keep score" (his words).

    He then announced that he couldn't actually play the piece.
    In a way he was correct, there were a couple of splits on the way through - but he could still play it MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more accurately then anyone in the room.

    If I could get close I would be happy:D

    I can manage the theme, I can manage the cadenzas - beyond that, I'm in trouble.

    He's also a much nicer guy than I am
