The composer wrote the music he wanted to hear and play and orchestrated it that way. If, for some reason, one player would have a lot of rests, that was not the composers problem.
He clearly wrote with the valved trumpet it mind, using it as a chromatic instrument. In comparison, up to about Beethoven, the trumpets mostly employed only the overtone series. The limitations were and are more of the type of instruments and number of players -- it would be difficult to expect a piece written for 24 oboes, 12 bassons and one contrabasson to performed very often.

You might check the original setting for Music for the Royal fireworks. I guess, though, that sometimes parts were added to "union rules" so that all the players on payroll might get paid, I believe it could happen when the composer worked with a specific orchestra. As a professional musician you play what is on your stand, you are paid to do that.

As an amateur, I tend to like listening to the music as well as playing. Long rests do not disturb me. Having long rests in romantic type music is often a lesser problem than playing some of the contemporary art music when I cannot relate to the music and only finds it to be meaningless noise it happens, luckily not often. Here's a piano concerto with a good trumpet part: Shostakovich Piano Concerto 1.
It is also called Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and Strings which makes the importance of the trumpet fairly obvious. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

What are the typical trumpet parts in classical music? Ask Question. Asked 2 months ago. Active 2 months ago. Viewed 1k times.
Part of my question relates to this piano concerto:. Ken Graham 1 1 gold badge 1 1 silver badge 6 6 bronze badges. In the second case I would be happy to listen to so many classical concerts for free. FYI, the same question could also be asked about trombone and tuba parts, and the answer would be pretty much the same as MattPutnam's answer below. It's certainly not pure artistic reasons. Shostakovich's piano concerto is practically a double concerto for piano and trumpet. I'm a trumpet player who's played in many orchestras.
MattPutnam MattPutnam The obvious comment is that in an orchestra, everybody can't be a "soloist" all the time. It's also possible for the trumpet to play the solo in concertos written for another instrument. You could also play concertos written for most other wind instruments, possibly even violin minus the occasional double-bowing. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
