Whether it is his highest-selling edition of the Arban method or his incredible set of methods and studies, Edwin-Franko Goldman is one of the most important names in the history of our instrument. I am so pleased to have unearthed this incredible original edition of arrangements for trumpet and piano by Goldman himself, complete with his editorial foreword. Below I will paste his words so you can understand his hopes for this album of solo repertoire. From the foreword:
This collection of Selected Songs should come as a welcome addition to the repertoires of all players of discriminating taste and artistic ideals, and particularly to those who may have claimed that little or no music by the Great Masters has ever been arranged for the Cornet.
The songs included are mostly classics and will appeal in particular to those who love the best in music, and who are desirous of familiarizing themselves with works that will live forever.
The arrangement of the solo parts has been done with a twofold objective; close observance of the composer’s conception, and due attention towards effective setting regarding the Cornet’s technical possibilities.
In addition, the piano accompaniments have been retained in their original version, without the slightest alteration, enabling an instrumental rendition in exact conformity with the vocal version of the songs.
~ E.F. Goldman
