Brandon Ridenour - "Le Tour"
"Le Tour" by Brandon Ridenour Commissioned by and dedicated to Brandon's first trumpet teacher, Gregg Good (and his students), "Le Tour" translates to "The Ride". The melody was first written in Aix-en-Provence, France while Brandon was playing with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. It depicts a swirling, often circular, sometimes dizzying Carnivalesque ride - immersed within a bustling French scene.

Transcendental Etude No. 1 / BRANDON RIDENOUR
Transcendental Etude No. 1 for the trumpet ("Gracefully") Written in 2020, these (10) etudes are for the advanced trumpet player, each exercising a different musical style and/or trumpet-related concept. Written in a similar vein as Debussy and his piano etudes, these are a “warning to trumpeters to not take up the musical profession unless they have remarkable lips/fingers.” It is the composer’s hope that trumpet players everywhere will feel their playing and musicality transcend to a higher level after practice and execution of these etudes.

A Dream Within A Dream - USEFULchamber
The title track from USEFULchamber's album, "A Dream Within A Dream". Music by Brandon Ridenour set to the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow — You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand — How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep — while I weep! O God! Can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream? Feat.
