About 4 Airs de Bravoure
About the work
In 1824, Editions Schott in Mainz (Germany) published a trumpet method by C. Eugène Roy of which Editions Bim has now printed a facsimile as Volume 1 of the HKB-Historic Brass Series. The final pages of that method contain 4 works in the virtuoso style of the time that represent archetypical examples of such trumpet music and constitute a significant contribution to its repertoire. This practical edition renders it now possible to play these “Airs de bravoure” in concert.
