About Easy Ensemble Outings
Explore different styles of music
The Trumpet Outings series was conceived to provide trumpet players of all levels with a large and inclusive musical horizon.
These books provide original etudes and ensemble pieces inspired by various composers and styles which reflect music history: from Renaissance to Debussy, from Mozart to Jobim, via Bartók, Schoenberg, Steve Reich, Jazz, Celtic and other folk music.
Charles Reskin cleverly combines stimulation and entertainment, humor and emotion with professionalism and pedagogy. An excellent preparation for today’s eclectic repertory.
This book contains 14 short original pieces for three or four trumpets. Some may be performed by a larger trumpet ensemble for special events. The main idea here is as well to have pleasure to explore different styles of music and to perfect the ensemble playing.
