For years, trumpet players have aligned themselves with solo singers, especially sopranos, to perform the great Baroque repertoire for trumpet and voice. Organ reductions were created to replace the string parts making this great pairing more portable. Now these terrific trumpet and voice duets can be played by a standard brass quintet. The solo trumpet part remains the same (also allowing for performance on natural trumpet) and the remainder of the quintet performs the string parts. The 2nd trumpet performs on flugel horn to create a greater cohesion within the ensemble allowing for the bright piccolo (or natural) trumpet sound to float above the ensemble in duet with the soprano.
