Ode To Joy / Trumpet & Organ or Piano

Ode To Joy / Trumpet & Organ or Piano


This piece is a  grade 1.5 setting of Beethoven's Ode To Joy for trumpet and organ (or piano) accompaniment.

it begins in  the key concert F, then moves to concert B flat, with a very simple, yet sonorous modulation for organ and soloist.  Trumpet solo note durations are all whole note, half note, or quarter. the only exception is the tied quarter note over the bar line which distinguishes the piece.  While sounding impressive, yet is very playable for 2nd or even advanced 1st year players. Four-bar phrase development is encouraged.
