The biggest work at the smallest price! It’s not a CD or a DVD but a Book. We recommend a reading with Adobe Reader (Windows or Mac). Read first the Instructions (p6) then the Contents (p7).

The DVD -ROM DL "The World of the Trumpet and Brass (classical, pop, jazz)" is the largest item at the lowest price on this subject. This is an encyclopedic work volume without claim to be an encyclopedia (playful approach with abundance of illustrations - photos, audio and video). This book to consult on computer is a PDF of 3292 pages (1.14 GB), 180 photographic planks by Lisiane Laplace (in addition to many clichés, sometimes rare or unreleased), 674 audio extracts on mp3 (1888 -present), 140 video clips. Suffice to say, a database that a book on paper cannot compete with.

There are 8 texts in English :

-The Founders of the French Trumpet and Cornet “Schools” (Franquin, Foveau)

- Roger Delmotte : master of the Twentieth Century

-Masters of the XXth Century : Rafael Méndez

-George Swift. You see who I mean?

-Harry James (1916-1983).Young Man with a Horn

- Jabbo Smith. The Misunderstood and The ‘Modernistic’ (15 pages, previously printed by der Jazzfreund)

- Ravel and the "new" trombone

- About the Author

It can be enough for your money! But add that all the chapters have a summary in English!

Needless to say that the photos, tables and diagrams need no translation and the discographies are easily understandable to everybody (Maurice André, Vitaly Buyanovsky, Roger Delmotte, Timofey Dokshitser, Roger Guérin, Rafael Méndez, Pierre Thibaud are the main works).

 

The heart of the book consists of 4 dictionaries: Family Album of 8165 entries and 1,727 pages (including 6396 biographies or biographical notes on trumpeters), Personalities of Trombone (644), French horn (243), tuba (160). So, 7443 brass players of all time are documented. We must add 337 manufacturers of brass instruments.

UN ALBUM DE FAMILLE DES CORNETTISTES & TROMPETTISTES (WHO’s WHO OF TRUMPETERS): All biographies follow the same pattern in telegraphic style with Abbreviations to be understood by those who do not speak French. Comments in English are sometimes given. To make this work even more "international" we put (as often as possible) internet links in English. Even proposing here over 8165 input with more than 6,396 trumpeters, one cannot imagine to be exhaustive.
