    Lyrical Etudes

    "Lyrical Etudes for Trumpet" was composed, as the title suggests, to aid the serious student and professional with that portion of his or her practice session devoted to lyrical playing. This book is inspired by former Chicago Symphony Tubist Arnold Jacobs, whose philosophy dictates that the fundamental style for any brass player should be lyrical. Devoting a certain portion of one's practice to lyricism promotes relaxed playing when the transition is made into more technical and extreme upper register material. Designed as a progressive volume that fits comfortably between the Concone "Lyrical Studies": and Theo Charlier's "Etudes Transcendantes," these etudes should be both educational and enjoyable to play. -Phil Snedecor.

    Layout of the notation makes this edition easy to read. A variety of playable keys up to 4 sharps/flats, both symmetrical and asymmetrical meter enclosed. Range are somewhat moderate, but occasionally ascend to high C above the staff. The composer indicates that the player should also transpose certain etudes to C, D, Ab, and other keys. 31 pages. -pc
