Timofei Dokshizer: Romatic
Etudes for Trumpet
Originally, the Romantic Pictures etudes were
intended for select and well-trained professional musicians. This present
second edition is intended for a wider range of performers including students.
The materials of each etude in this version are abridged while retaining
the original technical challenges of the first edition. This makes Romantic
Pictures attractive for performers and helpful for their creative evolution.
Dokshizer wanted to make his original Romantic Pictures more
accessible to a wider range of trumpet players, from students to professionals.
He found many people had difficulty with the original version being too
challenging. In his revised version, all twenty etudes from the original
are presented but they have been condensed somewhat.
They are still challenging though!
