Debussy began composing the suite in 1890 and ultimately published the work in 1905 after several revisions. This arrangement remains true to the original form. However the key was was moved down a half step from the original key of...
20th Century. George Enescu (or Georges Enesco,1881-1955), the Romanian composer, violinist, conductor and teacher, divided his time between Paris and his native country.

Miles, as the name implies, is inspired by the improvisations and compositional style of Miles Davis during his modal period. With one masked exception, none of the themes presented here are taken from Miles Davis recordings. Instead, the piece is constructed (like Miles solos) around clearly defined rhythmic and melodic motives. This piece requires a good deal of rhythmic independence from players and each person is featured in short solo and lead roles at various points throughout the piece. Ra...

Baroque. This version is written for four trumpets and, since it is written in the lower key of B-flat major, it lies very nicely on B-flat trumpets and is also written so that all four parts have a chance to both carry the melody and rest. Score & parts. -the publisher

Renaissance. Moritz von Hessen (1572-1632) wrote this work for 4 cornetti. The "cornet" of Hessen's day was a wooden instrument much like a modern recorder, but with a cupped mouthpiece and wrapped in leather. It had a gentle yet clear tone, and because of its fingerhole construction, was fully chromatic. This edition, extracted from Das Erbe Deutscher Musik Landschaftsdenkmale Kurhessen, is for modern trumpets set in the key of F (G if performed on Bb trumpets). It has been edited for phrasing a...
