Our featured artist this week is Philip Cobb, currently the principal trumpet in the London Symphony, as well as an internationally acclaimed brass band cornet soloist.
The first video shows Cobb playing the flashy cornet solo Cornet Jubilance accompanied by the RET Brass Band. The performance is exciting, musical, and seemingly effortless!
The second video is a masterclass featuring Cobb and Nigel Gomm, also of the London Symphony. They discuss several important trumpet orchestral excerpts, as well as general musical topics related to phrasing, tone production, etc.
