Mel Broiles was a prolific author of trumpet methods, studies, AND solo repertoire. As we gear up for his 90th birthday celebration we are bringing you his signature piece, Vernal Equinox for C Trumpet and Piano, Op.14 Parts 1 & 2.
This piece is wildly virtuosic in its first part, moving rapidly between registers, with flourishes that Mel used to dazzle and delight audiences all over the world. Part 2 is a lento movement with powerful phrasing and bravado that is a prefect representation of his charismatic charm.
To the left you will find some samples to try for free, then when you are ready you can grab an immediate digital download above.
