Solo trumpet, unaccompanied

A DAY IN THE CITY “7 Vignettes” (1986) for solo trumpet by Howard J. Buss. These colorful musical scenes from the city are excellent study and recital pieces. Each movement is given a title which depicts an occurrence which the composer experienced one day in 1982 during a visit to New York City. The movements are Another Sunrise (based upon an early morning excursion to Central Park to witness the rising of the sun over the buildings); Off to a Busy Day (driving in heavy traffic, zigzagging around to avoid "crazy" drivers); The Lost Key Episode (the composer lost his car keys, but the key of the music is lost too); The Waitin' in Line Blues (an actual blues progression during which the performer alternates between playing with a straight tone and a heavy, obnoxious "corny" vibrato to show frustration at being stuck in a slow-moving line); Romantic Interlude (a beautiful, melodious and flowing waltz); Sudden Storm (getting caught up in a raging thunderstorm); and Out on the Town (has a cheerful Latin feel and breaks into swing as it reaches its climax). "Tonal, charming and imaginative! The low purchase price and the incisive approach of a skilled composer make this a piece worth seeking out.”- PMEA News (10’) Grade IV. Score sample, movement 5.pdf

COMMEMORATION (1989) for solo trumpet by Howard J. Buss is a musical tribute to the countless musicians who have contributed to the art of trumpet playing over the centuries. The musical essence of this work is a synthesis of traditional and new trumpet performance techniques. This combination of the old and new is a musical representation of the debt contemporary trumpeters owe to their counterparts in past generations. In sections of Commemoration the trumpet is performed in the traditional manner, indeed, there are a number of quotes from famous trumpet masterpieces of the past. At one point the performer is asked to sing (using the syllable "ah") a portion of the well known Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke while simultaneously sustaining a note on the instrument and using a plunger mute. The effect is truly mystical and becomes a musical synthesis of the past and present. In other sections the trumpet is used as a synthesizer, capable of producing a wide array of timbres and effects. Short quotes from the literature are embedded in this intriguing work which also includes messages expressed by pitch serialism and Morse code. The score includes detailed performance directions as well as a helpful explanation of the coded (serial) sections. “A must for the advanced performer. “- ITG Journal (6’30)  Grade VI.
