Trumpet Inspiration 51

Ottorino Respighi’s Pines of Rome was composed in 1924 and has been a major staple in the symphonic repertoire ever since. The beautiful off-stage trumpet solo in the second movement is frequently included on professional auditions.

An arrangement was written for brass ensemble and performed here by the All-Star Brass in 2014. The brass playing here is nothing short of amazing (the piece is hard enough to be played by a full orchestra!).

The three trumpet players are Jens Lindemann, Ryan Anthony, and Phil Snedecor.

The first video is the 2014 All-Star Brass recording. The second is the original version for full orchestra as recorded by the New World Symphony.
