The music of Bach and Telemann are here compiled and edited for the trumpet. To begin a study in the "art of the phrase", the student has to integrate the many areas of music (history, theory, education and ones own instrument) as one subject. When you look at works like those contained in this book, do not think about the trumpet and its components (fingerings, lips, slides, mouthpiece pressure, mechanics), but rather of all the things that make a piece of music stylistically correct and above all beautiful.
After the myriad technical issues have been considered, begin to interpret the works with a sense of making beautiful music, changing styles with each pieces as the title suggests, Gigue, Sarabande, Gavotte, etc. The goal is for you to perform each piece with a sense of freedom within a structure conducive to the performance practice of the period and to make beautiful music.
Note to the teacher: My hope is that this book will provide a starting point for discussion between you and your students about the art of phrasing and performance practice of the times. To this end, I have kept close to the original and left out phrasing indications. …..Michael Ewald, editor
