    No wonder why the baroque trumpet has been and is used as the standard for organ trumpets…

    I always liked piccolo trumpet, but I agree.

  8. pacman80500 says:

    schon, aber ist es so toll? es war ganz gut, aber wirklich diesen Lob kommt von leute die nie so was erleben könnten. Mit barock Trompeten gibts wirklich viel mehr beeindruckendere Auffuhrungen.

    I just made love to my wife to this track, it was perfect! Both the music and the sex. I hope Handel is in whatever form of heaven may exist. For creating this, he deserves it!

    Nate I play trumpet myself. What a beautiful sound you make with this instrument. I won’t say congratulations but I will say kudos. You made my heart soar with this bit of music, I’m actually crying a bit :D

    @natemayfield, thnx for posting this video of one of Haendels gratest music parts, here performed by a master of the Baroc Trumpet.
    It sounds as great and pure as it should sound……

    it really is a difficult instrument to play, and he sounds so perfect on it

  19. peteacher52 says:

    Thank you Nate! You have played some movements of the Watermusic I’d not heard before. Your artistry on your instrument deserves the highest accolades, and I’m sure Herr Handel would concur, were he able!

    Nice work!!!

    Very good playing of a natural trumpet.He is nearly up to the standard of Michael Laird.I stood 15 feet from him playing the trumpet suite in F.It drilled me to the floor and made my hair stand on end!!!

    They say that if you make the instrument as it was then, you don’t need tone hole openings. They used to bend rectangles of metal around a mandrel and solder the edges together, BUT they’d put the bad side of the metal inside. This supposedly makes a ‘blattier’ sound, but makes the note much easier to bend. A period mouthpiece helps too, but no one really plays on these. Today, the yards are of drawn metal. Nate’s using a natural trumpet, not a Baroque trumpet. He’s great.

  23. Adam Warren says:

    From an amateur viewpoint, I think Maurice Andre’s playing is reminiscent of clarino technique.
    In the wind-playing connection, could I enlist people’s help in sourcing a 17th-century English cornet tune I heard the Grenadier Guards band play years ago in St. James’s Park? I’ve never heard it since, and I don’t know whether it was originally scored for the shawm-family cornetto, or for a brass instrument similar to the modern brass-band cornet I heard it played on.
