Telemann wrote 12 Heroic Marches each based on a different Heroic trait or characteristic. This arrangement is of the first three of those marches, Majesty, Grace and Valliance. A popular composer for trumpet players, the 1st trumpet part is a solo part written in C or D but suggested on A piccolo, the perfect virtuoso part similar to the part in an organ recital. The opening movement may make a perfect opener to a concert on it’s own or the three movements a great longer item in a concert programme. They are also perhaps an interesting alternative to the usual Trumpet Voluntaries. Vibrant, brilliant and sparkling, these wonderful movements by an audience-friendly composer make a perfect addition to any repertoire.
