This new collection of studies by Wilhelm Wurm is divided into two books, and is a wonderful example of Russian melodic writing for brass.
For the uninitiated, Wilhelm Wurm was a celebrated cornetist and conductor. He was named professor of cornet playing at the Conservatory of St. Petersburg as well as the solo cornet in the Mariinsky Theater’s orchestra. During this time, Wurm met the legend Jean-Baptiste Arban. The two became very good friends and Arban dedicated one of his best pieces, “Caprice and Variations” to Wurm.
