The Garrouste is an interesting book for me. I saw it once years ago, only a partial copy, and it looked so brutally bad that it was almost impossible to play out of. I put it on my list of books to find and it took me until now to get my hands on a copy. It was advertised in Petit’s Grand Method (to give you an idea of how old it is) and it was published on massive oversized paper that has tons of artifacts all over it. I worked some magic and finally made a digital edition that is perfectly readable and printable to normal size paper (iPad approved as always).
These duets are challenging, requiring advanced flexibility and endurance, but they are well worth the effort. They are quick and bright, virtuosic, and show off all of the best aspects of fine trumpeting. It checks all of the boxes for me, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
