Trumpet Encores - Brandon and Rich Ridenour
Malaguena is a personal arrangement/composition of mine that I was working this past winter (early 2008). Largo al Factotum is an arrangement of the famous "Figaro" aria from Rossini's Barber of Seville. My dad did this one about a year ago and is very popular with our audiences. Simple Gifts/Amazing Grace is another popular (and audience favorite) arrangement of my dad's. Flight of the BrandonBee is a co-arrangement of ours where I worked out the trumpet part and my dad did the piano part. We came together and made sure both of the parts worked well with one another. This is a process we've used for many of our co-arrangements. Rhapsody in Blue is a co-arrangement of ours and is, in my opinion, the highlight of the CD. It's a piece that we have both lived with for a long time. I played Rhapsody in Blue (on piano) in high school under my dad's instruction. I remember performing it with him (playing the orch part) on my high school senior recital in 2003 when I was 17. My dad has been performing the work every year in various forms for over 30 years. ---Brandon. This recording is not an Opening Day title.
