A Turkish Concerto for Trumpet

Trumpet Concerto

Fazil Say

• A concerto in 3 movements
• Inspired by the composer’s Turkish origins
• Distinctive changing metre creates an exciting performance piece
• Parts for both C and Bb trumpet included

Commissioned by the Festival of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Fazıl Say wrote his Trumpet Concerto for Gábor Boldoczki.
Written in the classical three-movement concerto form, the work refers directly to Fazıl Say’s Turkish roots, be it in theEastern-inspired melody and harmony, by characteristic metrical shifts or by the distinctive use of the instruments from the rhythm section of the small orchestra.
The piano reduction written by Fazıl Say himself goes far beyond a study aid and is also intended for concert performances.
