Trumpet Sextet No.2
This piece offers the performers an opportunity to sing, play with individuality, as well as with a collective sound. The 1st trumpet player may want to use piccolo trumpet for the ending, although I’ve heard it played very successfully on C trumpet as well. Pay very close attention to the balancing of melodic and accompanimental voices. While every voice is important and contributes counterpoint and harmonic interest, most often there is a primary voice that needs to project through the texture without having to force.
