I must admit that I am struggling with the new Trumpet/Trombone syllabi.
As a horn player I don't know the repertoires as well as my own, and they are so vastly different from the previous syllabus that I have found all the tpt/trb music I have is completely redundant now (which makes me furious as I had invested a fair bit of money in buying the music). Now I am flying blind asking kids to buy pieces of music that I don't know hoping that they are suitable - many shops don't seem to have them in so I can't browse them and I can't afford to buy all the music for both instruments (especially if it's going to change again in a few years!).
In fact, none of my local music shops even have the new brass syllabus in!
Can anybody recommend a good Grade 6 trumpet list B piece? I am looking for something quick to contrast the slow movement of the Haydn. Anybody know what "Jigaudon" by John McCabe or "Whodunnit - Suite for Trumpet" is like?
I would suggest the Larsson concertino for trumpet to contrast the haydn as it is going to be re-useable in the future for competitions etc.
I am liking the Gibbons as a new addition to list A G6 tpt too and the Rusalka's song to the moon for list B (this has been on the TG list for a few years now and really suits players with a rich round sound on cornet)
