The Oboist Karl Mille wrote extensively for his instrument while maintaining a full time playing career. One of the great things about oboe repertoire is that the range and abilities of the instrument are in perfect parallel with the trumpet. We perform many oboe concertos as if they were our own, and we are beginning to do the same with the study repertoire as well.
These 7 studies by Karl Mille have been expertly adapted for the trumpet by Erik Veldkamp. From a technical perspective, these are a delightful challenge. This challenge is mitigated by the enjoyment you will receive from playing technical etudes that are musical in nature, and extremely satisfying to master. If you have played Erik Veldkamp’s Articulation Series from qPress, you can consider these studies the perfect finishing school.
