I have been playing the trumpet my entire career, and have been using the Maxime-Alophone Etudes Nouvelles for a very large part of it. The funny thing is, of course that they were written for French Horn (here is the original 6 book set). I have always known that, but continued to play from them, displacing octaves as needed, because Charlier recommends it in his 36 Transcendental Etudes. The one thing I did not know was that they were transposed and transcribed for the trumpet! Three books full of the best etudes from the set are available here, individually, or as a full set for 25% off.
Included you will find:
Book 1: 20 Difficult Studies
Book 2: 20 Very Difficult Studies
Book 3: 10 Grand & Melodic Studies
Each book is better than the last, and the transcriptions for the trumpet are so idomatic you would swear that Maxime-Alphonse was thinking of the trumpet when he composed them. There are almost entirely in English, French, and German, making it easy to understand for everyone.
I have included the first page of each in the samples so you can try them out, then grab one or all above. Enjoy this amazing find!
