Lyrical Studies for Trumpet (book/CD)
- Autore Concone
Lyrical Studies trumpet (with CD accompaniment in Bb)
The “Lyrical Studies” by the famous 19th c. Italian vocal coach Giuseppe Concone (1810-1861), selected and adapted for trumpet by John F. Sawyer, were designed to develop musical phrasing and breath control.
As of January 2009, the book has become available with a CD of original accompaniments composed by film music composer Robert Gulya. The accompaniments offer a large mix of colorful styles, and they were written in the interest of promoting good listening habits and building musical confidence in order to enhance the trumpeter's performance confidence and musical consciousness.
