Brass duets

Hi I am looking for a reasonably difficult trumpet duet, that we can play on two sops, so would prefer duet in top range with reasonable difficulty, if piano part is available then we could transpose the piano parts to suit sops . We are hoping to play at this years Summer School. To give an idea of what we require, last year we played Vivaldi's Bb Trumpet Concerto for two trumpets and Orchestra. but we played on two sops, with re-arranged piano parts to suit if I can be pointed in right direction, then could hopefully purchase parts

There's always this one Dave... I think it may even have been you that gave me the soloist parts for it?


(How are you doing by the way, haven't spoken to you for far too long)

How about the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Handel)? Re-arrange the two Oboe parts for two sops, and the string parts for piano. I reckon there are already transcriptions of this as I've played one for a wedding where we did it on two Eb trumpets and had Organ accompany.

Here's a link to the original orchestration:

Hi Simon, thanks for info , have looked at score and seems ideal for us. We have found a site that allows us to download Trumpet parts. As you have already played it , do you still have the organ part?? if so could we please borrow it, if you have trumpet parts that would be a great bonus, we would be happy to pay for any expenses you may incur, Many thanks :clap:
