Duhem’s Etudes are some of the most wonderful trumpet studies that you have never played before. Finding a hidden gem is such a wonderful feeling! I just finished reading through this entire series and had such a blast I couldn’t wait to get editions up for sale. I am attaching the first study in the samples for each book so you can give them a try yourself. Once you play the first few pages you will be hooked for life. Great for intermediate to advanced/professional players, covering a wide range of styles, technique, articulation, transposition, and so much more.
This particular volume of Etudes was written in a similar style to his collections of melodious etudes. Many are legato in style, many of which are very technical, evoking a technical brilliance instead of a singing style. Wonderful studies, perfect for study and masterclass performances, oozing with style and musicality. Give the first few a try in the samples.
