Merri Jean Baptiste Franquin b. Georges Mager — , who was principal trumpet of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from until , studied in the cornet class under Joseph Mellet, but seems to have been influenced as well by the teachings of Franquin; Mager may have studied with him informally and certainly worked with several of his successful students. Franquin's most notable accomplishment while at the Paris Conservatory was his push for the C Trumpet to replace the low F trumpet as a more versatile orchestral instrument. A more modern form of this instrument was introduced to American symphony orchestras by Georges Mager , and it remains very much in popular use in the United States. He was self-taught on cornet for four years before moving to Marseille.

I am certain that this project is among the most important we have ever taken on at qPress. Setting out, it seemed that this job would be a trivial, albeit rewarding, translating exercise.
It turned out to be much more than that. Over the past 18 months, I have worked hand-in-hand with two wonderful translators, consulted with engravers, and spoke with historical experts in a variety of the topics that are covered in this book. Our goal was to maintain the integrity of the source publication as much as possible, while creating a translation that will bring this wonderful grand method to a new generation of trumpeters.
Jacome, but is little known in North America. This French method book has been used by all of the great European soloists, like Maurice Andre and Guy Touvron, who have both written extensively on how to use the book to its full potential. This is the first time this book has been available as a digital edition, and for only a third of the price and none of the massive weight of a hard copy. The book is divided into two main parts. First is a theoretical part, then a practical part divided into 3 subsections.
As a method, it covers every possible area of trumpet playing to an extent that I cannot fit it all in this description. Everything from how to play from the very beginning, holding the trumpet and mouthpiece placement, thoughts on breathing, attack, and posture. These are followed by studies in flexibility, intervals, legato playing, high range, lots of transposition, studies, reading exercises, excerpts from solos and orchestral works, and much much more. I have included many samples, take a look, then dive in with a purchase above.
I guarantee this is the most important trumpet book translation released in the 21st century. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Reviews There are no reviews yet. Add to cart. Franquin, Merri.
