    Can anyone recommend a good orchestral excerpt book for trumpet? I'm not really sure what I should be looking for and there are so many on the market.

    Orchestral Excerpts - can't remember the publisher. There are about 10 volumes, with just about everything in them. Try a good library first before buying.

    The "standard" set of Orchestral Excerpts are published by Bartold/Voisin. There are 10 volumes.
    They can be purchased online from http://www.juneemerson.co.uk/

    The Bartold/Voisin are the standards, but there are mistakes and many of the excerpts are very short.

    If you are looking for the best currently available, in my opinion, you could do a lot worse than visiting www.hickmanmusiceditions.com and ordering all 16 of David Hickman's excerpt book - longer excerpts and some VERY useful additions to the excerpt repertoire.

    I have bought the Hickman books and also recommend them. In my experience Hickman Music provide fast and efficient service. Your stuff arrives a bit quicker than you expect from the US.
