Charlier for 3 TrumpetsStig Sønderriis
Théo Charlier - (1868-1944) Charlier for 3 Trumpets - arranged from Théo Charlier´s "36 Etudes Transcendantes" by Stig Sønderriis.
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.
