The Orchestral Trumpet
Michael Sachs, Principal Trumpet of the Cleveland Orchestra, has self-published The Orchestral Trumpet and kindly included Balquhidder Music as a distributor.
You won't believe this project - 176 pages plus a CD. It is a beautifully produced book with wire-o binding that will be easy to handle and stay open on your stand. There are over 90 excerpts that Michael presents and comments upon extensively, drawing upon his twenty-five years as Principal Trumpet in Cleveland, from John Adams to Bach and everyone in between. It is really an incredible source book for the orchestral trumpeter. (MS1001 162pp)
The CD (included with the book) has over 60 of these excerpts that he recorded - in only two days! This is a remarkable witness to Michael’s stellar career - a once-in-a-century book/CD and I know it will be a must-have in the trumpet community.
