Marco Bordogni’s Vingt-Quatre Vocalises adapted for Trumpet by Armand Porret brings the brilliance and beauty of Bordogni’s Vocalises to the trumpeter’s world, with a special twist. Constantly changing transpositions will keep you on your toes and help you flex your transposition muscles in a new way. The tunes only sound “right” when the written transpositions are executed correctly.
On their own, these vocalises are wonderful ways to practice musical phrasing and enjoy the beautiful sounds of the trumpet, but the added transpositional element provides a unique challenge. These exercises are perfect for anyone who wants to develop their sight-transposing abilities to feel more comfortable with those nasty licks in Strauss’ orchestral parts.
