The Brandenburg Concerto has long been regarded as one of the most challenging concerti for trumpet. Here is an excellent video showing Reinhold Friedrich performing it masterfully. It is a very real pleasure to see and hear him play.
Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.
That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to EddieLewis.com. Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
