My favourite thing in this world is finding a trumpet book that no one has ever seen before! qPress has had the entire collection of Hermann Pietzsch for some time, but we are always on the hunt for rare things that might have survived from centuries past, and that is how we found this book. It seems it was published once, then forgotten until now. We got our hands on one of the last remaining copies in the world and are bringing it to you today.
Pietzsch’s 16 Medium Sized Studies was originally titled “16 Mittelschwere Studien”, and consists of transcriptions for the trumpet by Pietzsch himself. Each study is about a page long, and take it from me, you should not let the name fool you into thinking these are too easy! These are technically difficult and virtuosic in nature, not unlike the original compositions you may now from his existing catalogue, and are guaranteed to challenge and delight even the most seasoned players.
