Abstract:The purpose of this study was to describe, in the form of an annotated bibliography, the original works for unaccompanied trumpet published in America. This paper is intended as a pedagogical source, with emphasis on the extended techniques employed in each work. It is hoped that this study will aid in the selection, instruction, and performance of these works.
Three periods within the repertoire are identified with regard to the employment of extended techniques; the conservative period, 1963-1969, the experimental period, 1970-1977, and the radical period, 1978-1988. Chapters are divided according to these time delineations, with the works utilizing a significant number of extended techniques appearing before those works with an insignificant number of extended techniques. Each of the works which fall into the category of significant extended techniques is annotated in considerable detail, the annotations being presented in two sections labeled Factual Information, and Analytical Information and Commentary. The Factual Information section includes the composer's name, dates, complete title of the piece, composition date, publisher, publishing date, to whom the work was dedicated and who commissioned it. Also included in this section is information on the first performance of the piece, the approximate length of time required to perform the work, and the instrument intended for performance. Any mutes required for performance, the range of the composition, the name and number of the movements including incipits, the difficulty level of the work, and the extended techniques employed in the piece are also listed. The Analytical Information includes a description of the musical parameters of melody, texture, rhythm and meter, pitch organization, and form. Musical examples are used throughout this section to clarify the text. The Commentary portion of this study describes the extended techniques and unusual performance problems related to the composition. A description of the general tessitura of the work is also included as well as a statement of practicality for performance and any facts or observations not covered in other areas.
The works employing an insignificant number of extended techniques proceed the works with a significant number of extended techniques of each period. These solos are cataloged according to difficulty level. The discussion of each of these solos is in paragraph form and covers general aspects of the composition.
The fifth chapter of this study, the conclusion, contains a catalog of all the unaccompanied trumpet solos published in America. Lists are also included for grade levels, durations, instruments used, compositional styles, notation systems, and extended techniques. A suggested list of works for recitals and study purposes is also given by the author.
