TRP-158 His Honor (16 trumpets) [6] Fillmore, H. (Olcott)

Composer: Fillmore, Henry
Transcriber: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 16
Key: F Major concert
Duration: 2 minutes and 50 seconds
Difficulty: 6
One of Henry Fillmore's most famous and fun marches. Four B-flat piccolo trumpets, 10 B-flat trumpets, and two flugelhorns. Great fun to play. Two obligatos for the trio section are provided: Fillmore's original and a special trumpet obligato by the transcriber (the latter turns the difficulty rating to a 7, but what a challenge :-) The microphone icon on the left is the full recording with Fillmore's original obligato, which is a lot easier to play than it sounds. The microphone on the right is the trio section of the march with the trumpet obligato.

TRP-036 Scherzo (12 trumpets) [8] Moser, F. (Olcott)

Scherzo

Composer: Moser, Franz
Editor: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 12
Key: C Major concert
Duration: 8 minutes
Difficulty: 8
Edited for 3 C trumpets, 9 B-flat trumpets and bass trumpet (trombone can substitute). One of the best of the classic pieces for trumpet ensemble. All of the elements are here: excellent lines, challenging interplay, great rhythmic vitality, and harmonic interest. Challenging for every player. Available in print form only.
ITG Journal, February 2003, page 41:
"Commencing with a pulsing exchange between the quartets and climaxing in a grand cadence of heroic proportions, Scherzo is ripe with potential for audience appeal. Listeners are carried to peak after peak, let down gently, and allowed to follow the ascent once more. Based upon the inherent musical merit of the piece, its pedagogical worth, and the high quality printing characteristic of Triplo Press, the list price should tot be a deterent to placing Moser's Scherzo in libraries and on programs with regularity.

An exceptional and very rousing and majestic piece perfect for opening an event or concert. Uses three antiphonal groups of four. The recording says it all. Whew! NOTE: to view the video full screen to better see the music, click on the lower right hand corner of the video.
ITG Journal, March 2015, page 85:
"...largely in a fanfare style, generating considerable excitement from the start... Dynamic contrasts are evident as intensity builds to the end. The title, Soundings, is a perfect example of what this piece stands for—fanfare sounds coming from all members of the ensemble with imitation and clarion effect... This short, brilliant work is enjoyable to perform and a sure audience pleaser. This effective flourish is highly recommended."
