Guiseppe Concone: Fifteen Vocalises Op. 12, “Finishing Studies for High Voice” adapted for B♭ Trumpet by Rich Willey brings the brilliance and beauty of Concone’s Fifteen Vocalises Opus 12 to the trumpet world. The annotations alone at the end of each study are worth the price of admission here.
These studies are ideal for developing a smooth and controlled upper register and to help meet the constantly increasing demands of today’s trumpet literature. Written for the soprano voice over a hundred and fifty years ago, these are finally available to take today’s trumpet players to the next level.
Like no other book on the market, this collection will help you get comfortable playing higher prettier and better. Combining the lyrical nature of these studies with a higher tessitura* than you’ll see in most other etude books, your playing will improve in leaps and bounds in no time.
Fine legato playing is widely regarded as one of the best means of developing tone and real endurance on the trumpet. Concone’s studies have long been considered among the best to do just that, and with the release of this volume you don’t have to just do it in the lower and middle registers anymore.
