The Trumpet concerto in Eb, written in 1796 after Haydn's two London visits, is possibly his finest work in this medium. It contains not only a mature melodic ingenuity but also the characteristic Haydn-esque tricks and turns. It was the first concerto to be written for an instrument capable of a complete chromatic scale; Anton Weidinger's newest invention of a keyed trumpet or clarino provided the inspiration for Haydn and his masterpiece remains the most popular of all works in the trumpet repertoire. Georg Frideric Handel (1685-1759) began work on his oratorio Samson only days after the completion of his most well known work, The Messiah. The aria Let the Bright Seraphim (1741) was a late inclusion and provides a climatic close as the final aria of the oratorio. Common in the baroque pairing of trumpet and voice, Handel uses the trumpet for melodic 'echo' of the soprano as well as ornamented accompaniment. The duo sing flowing yet regal melodic lines in this aria, "celebrating the triumphs of Samson in death and everlasting life". The Fanfare for St. Edmunsbury was written in 1959 by Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) for the Pageant of Magna Carta held in the grounds of Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral. It is in the form of three separate fanfares (played attaca) which combine ingeniously in conclusion. The Concerto for Trumpet, Brass Ensemble and Percussion by Anthony Plog (b. 1947) is a relatively new work commissioned in 1988 for David Hickman and the Summit Brass. Plog himself is a trumpeter and a member of the Summit Brass and his own career as a soloist and knowledge of the repertoire undoubtedly influenced his writing in this work. The Concerto contains many signature trumpet 'licks', the offstage solo at the beginning formulated around the natural 'valve-less trumpet' overtones (a motif that will reappear throughout the work), the expressive bluesy slow movement contrasted with fast articulated passages and a finale with heroic, soaring high notes. It is a tour-de-force for both soloist and ensemble and a welcome addition to the modern American trumpet repertoire. Compiled by Stevan Paranosic
