25 Melodic Studies By Alexandre Petit


Digital Download

Style is the character of the music. It is important to account for the style of the music being played to achieve a perfect interpretation and bring out the beauty underneath.-A. Petit from his forward to 25 Etudes Melodiques (for the practice of style).

Seriously, that quote from the preface sounds way sexier in French, but this book is part of the first-ever complete translation of the works of Alexandre Petit for the trumpet. These studies are a treatise on style. Examples range from marked styles to dances, to somber, slow, and religious. Each is expertly crafted, very idiomatic, and a wonderful addition to our repertoire. This book has been out of print since the late 1800s, and I am extremely proud to offer it for sale on qPress, translated, and in its original form as the composer intended.

Alexandre Petit published a set of 3 etude books after completing part one of his complete method for trumpet. Each book is meant to act as material the player can use to apply the techniques they have been working on using the grand methods while exploring some new challenging melodic material.

The first two studies are available for free on the left. Give them a try, then grab a PDF download at the link above. Enjoy!
