Digital Download

The complete trumpet parts of JS Bach, all compiled in three handy volumes, with the complete set discounted at launch, is finally here!

The trumpet plays a significant role in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach due to its unique timbre, expressive capabilities, and ceremonial associations. Bach, a master of Baroque composition, skillfully incorporated the trumpet’s bright and majestic sound into his compositions, adding grandeur, brilliance, and emotional depth to his music.

In Bach’s time, the trumpet was considered a symbol of regality and triumph, often used in celebratory occasions and religious ceremonies. Its piercing tones could cut through the texture of an ensemble, making it ideal for emphasizing important thematic elements or marking significant moments within compositions.

Bach’s innovative use of the trumpet is evident in his sacred cantatas, such as the famous “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen” (BWV 51), where the trumpet’s fanfare-like passages exalt the text’s exuberant praise. In his festive orchestral works like the “Brandenburg Concerto No. 2” (BWV 1047), the trumpet takes a prominent role, contributing to the vibrant character and joyful spirit of the piece.

Bach’s masterful integration of the trumpet into various musical forms showcases his ability to blend diverse elements into a harmonious whole, showcasing his genius as a composer. The trumpet’s presence in Bach’s works adds a transcendent quality, elevating the emotional impact and leaving an indelible mark on his musical legacy.

About this edition:

This present edition renders possible a relevant study of the complete published Bach trumpet parts. The editor is of the opinion that to an authoritative preparation of Bach trumpet parts belong not merely the study of the various exposed sections, but also the widest possible knowledge of the following factors: length of part, its specific range, the balance of the trumpet section, pauses, exact dynamics, phrasing and articulation. For these reasons he has not omitted details which perhaps appear irrelevant, such as: da Capo, repeat marks, the exact number of pause bars, or, for example, the indication that the first chorus of a cantata is repeated at the end (BWV 30, 172, etc.). Many musicians use the orchestral scores as performing material. This view was allowed for by the inclusion of cues, the presence of pause bars at the page turn and exact titles (Chorus, Aria, etc.) and the numbering of the individual movements. All these criteria and their relationship one to another afford the player an exact impression of the demands made on him by the appropriate part.

Nowadays these parts are performed generally on F, G and high BbA trumpets. In some cases it is recommended that the first trumpet part be performed by two players (e.g. BWV 41). For predominantly practical reasons BWV 15 (this cantata was not composed by J. S. Bach, but by his cousin Johann Ludwig Bach) and the chorus by G. Ph. Telemann “So du mit deinem Munde” from BWV 145 have been included in this edition; also the horn parts in BWV 105 and 109 which are more or less unplayable by that instrument.

The reproduction of the score is based exclusively on the Bach original autographs or their copies. The edition is restricted to the original phrasing, articulation and dynamics. It must be mentioned at this point that the corresponding signs are transferred to the analogous places in (a) the first, (b) the second and third trumpet parts.
