Beethoven 4&7

This week is some really nice rep to solidify 2nd trumpet skills.

Beethoven 4 in Bflat really has me working in the lowest part of the trumpet register. Getting this really floppy and supple with flawless response loud and soft is what it’s all about.

The low g’s are a balance of not playing with too much tongue while keeping a nice crisp articulation. Air air and more air.

I really have to use a couple of different mouthpieces playing second trumpet on rotary. What feels good for Bruckner is not the same for Beethoven.

G2 for Bruckner. Bach 1B for Beethoven.
