Théo Charlier was a privileged witness of the evolution and the manufacturing of the trumpet. His contribution to the style progress of trumpeters was considerable.
Being a soloist of international reputation, he nevertheless also was appointed from 1901 onward a trumpet teacher at the Conservatoire Royal de Musique de Liège. At the beginning of this pedagogical career, a career that will last 32 years, he wrote the Thirty-Six Transcendent Studies for the Chromatic Trumpet in B-flat, studies which still today receive a wide diffusion throughout the world. These genre studies have allowed innumerable musicians to get initiated into a high-level lyrical and romantic expression.
