Trumpet Inspiration 52

Adam Rapa is a trumpet player known for his super-human performances. In this video he is performing an arrangement of Carl Maria von Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2.

As if it wasn’t hard enough to play a clarinet concerto on the trumpet, this arrangement also changes the time signature from 4/4 to 7/8!

Rapa is playing a 4-valve Bb trumpet, which allows him to play some of the clarinet notes that go below the traditional range of the Bb trumpet. The brass and percussion accompaniment by the Belgian Brass is outstanding!
