"Raoul's Rescue Mission" for narrator and orchestra/piano

Hi! Recently I finished a composition which I worked on for more than a year. It's a musical story for narrator and orchestra. I also created a version for narrator and piano because I am a pianist and it's probably easier to get a piano version of the work performed.The story is titled "Raoul's Rescue Mission" and is based on a children's book I wrote some 15 years ago. The piano version is probably the easiest performed by two persons (a pianist and a speaker), although I believe it could be…See More

"My pleasure, range is and isn't the issue. An 11th grader should be able to play a high concert Bb, but what makes it difficult is the quick tempo where you have 8va leaps in 16th notes. I like how Bob said it. Please take a look at a passage…"

"Thanks for the advice Rodney and Bob. I adjusted the parts and gave the 16th to the piano and an 8th notes outline to the trumpet. Could the high a flat be a problem? I always try to keep it not higher than g5, but it would break up the phrase very…"

Bob Porter replied to Andreas van Haren's discussion Question about trumpet passage

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Andreas van Haren's discussion Question about trumpet passage
"This is a tricky one, my friend. Is it playable? Yes but could come off awkward because of the fast, short leaps. The passage reminds me more of some of my etudes instead of repertoire. If I didn't know you were writing a trumpet part, I…"

Question about trumpet passage

I am arranging some of my piano music for piano and trumpet, and am not sure about one passage being idiomatic for the trumpet. Could anyone have a look at this screenshot and give me some advise?If it's not very trumpet idiomatic, I could instead write repeated 16th same pitch notes or switch the piano and trumpet part. Thanks!best wishes,AndréSee More
