Hi there, By way of introduction, I am the soprano cornet player for Waitakere Brass in NZ (one of Australasia's top bands) and current NZ national soprano champion. I have also written a full 20 minute concerto for E flat trumpet, and a shorter version of this is the set test for this year's Australian soprano championship. I have recently completed the composition of a new solo called Definitions Part 1. As I am a relatively unknown composer, I have decided to give it away for free (solo music, piano accompaniment and recording) I have made a rough recording of me playing it. If you would like an mp3 copy sent, please message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me if you want the "low res" version (3.9 Mb) or the "high res" (7.8 Mb) with the pdf files of the sheet music. I wrote it with soprano in mind, but some consider it best suited to E flat bass. I would also be interested in the opinion of a tenor horn player, but it probably wouldn't provide the "range" challenge, with the highest notes being B flats except for one optional top D. I said this recording is"rough", and I provide the following excuses as to why you can tear holes in my playing (soprano players are always full of excuses, you should know that): 1. Unlike my concerto, I didn't write this solo specifically for me, so all I did while composing was check to see if it was playable. 2. I didn't actually practice it prior to recording, so was trying to get it to the stage where I could adequately produce the notes. I confess to having to splice together three different takes, and initially the slow movement was so bad in all three takes, I went back on another day and re-recorded it. 3. I actually altered the tempo of some of the "first page" after I recorded it, and removed some notes to give the opportunity to breathe, so the removed notes sound disjointed, and you can distinctly hear where I played through without a breath originally - and stagger my way through a couple of "easy" bars. Unlike my concerto, this was composed directly for piano accompaniment, and my first attempt at writing for piano, so I think it works better than my concerto. While I am giving it away free to any who ask, I just ask that normal copyright rules be respected (i.e. don't claim it as your own work, or make money from it without consulting me) - my email address is also on the music. Any way, I hope to hear from some of you, and feel free to post comments on this thread.
