Etude No. 1


Etude No. 1 - "thirds and the third valve"

Part of a set of 12 trumpet etudes composed in 2020, largely during the isolation due to COVID-19. They are for the advanced player, each exercising a different musical and/or trumpet related concept. Written in a similar vein as Debussy and his piano etudes, they are a "warning to trumpeters to not take up the musical profession unless they have remarkable lips/fingers".
