A Trumpeter's Lullaby

A Trumpeter's Lullaby

Postby ChuckH » 19 Sep 2018 20:20

My entry for a piece of music that was originally written or recorded by any artist or songwriter from outside the UK.

A Trumpeter's Lullaby is a short composition for solo trumpet and orchestra, written by American composer Leroy Anderson in 1949 at the request of Voisin, who was principal trumpeter of the Boston Pops Orchestra at the time. It premiered on May 9, 1950, by the Boston Pops Orchestra with Arthur Fiedler conducting and French-born American Roger Voisin as trumpet soloist, who also produced the first recording a month later.

Hi Charles Your trumpeting skills are very good you must be out of breath. A nice tune not sure it is a lullaby would keep me awake. Enjoyed it something different. John

Hi Charles,

That is a new piece on me, but a very nice piece to listen to, and the voices sounded very natural
you played this very well and I enjoyed listening to it,

Charles,

You have mastered that trumpet beautifully, and the horn 'counter melody' really makes the whole piece complete.
