Sly Stone – If You Want Me To Stay

One riff that repeats. And repeats. And repeats. And repeats. And repeats…

Orchestral Transcriptions / Transpositions: Greig, Dvorak, Brahms

Woollahra Philharmonic OrchestraI’m not a classical or orchestral player by any means, but I recently had the honor of playing 2nd trumpet in a concert with the Woollahra Philharmonic Orchestra. My very first (and quite possibly my last) legitimate, serious orchestral experience!

Of course, none of the music was written for my instrument, B♭ trumpet. Most of it was written for E trumpet, also some for F and C trumpet. Generally speaking, classical trumpet players own instruments pitched in different keys, and/or can transpose readily at sight. Not me. I needed a few weeks before my first rehearsal to transpose every fiddly part for B♭ trumpet before I could play my first note with the orchestra.

Although I anticipate no demand for these whatsoever, here are my transposed parts anyway. Complete with the JazzText font, to make me feel at home while playing in an alien setting 🙂

Note: The original parts in their original keys were downloaded copyright-free from IMSLP, so I don’t envisage any copyright considerations for my transposition of those same parts.

Jain – Come (Extended Version)

I previously transcribed and recorded the single version of this lovely song. The extended version features some darker sounding brass lines and is a little less cheery than its shorter counterpart. The extended harmony vocals get a solid workout and sound very nice.
