Erik Veldkamp is one of the most creative and charismatic composers of music for the trumpet today. As jazz trumpeter for the Concertgebouw Orchestra, his deep understanding of brass playing of all styles is nearly unmatched. As with the rest of his duet output of the last decade, these duets are infused with character and nuance unlike any other duo books for our instrument.
Please, don’t take my word for it. Below I have included 4 great audio samples of Erik performing these duets, and the first page of each is in the samples to the left. Listen and play along before grabbing an immediate digital download above.
