Telemann - Concerto in D (I. Adagio)

Sheet music for trumpet

Alt. Title: Concerto in D major for trumpet, violins, and basso continuo
Info: Composed before the composer moved to Hamburg in 1721 to take up the duties of music director of the latter city's five largest churches, Georg Philipp Telemann's only concerto for trumpet, the Concerto in D major for trumpet, violins, and basso continuo, is a great piece. It is among the first solo trumpet concertos created by a German composer. The concerto has four movements. The trumpet truly takes center stage in the opening Adagio. This piece was transposed from D major to Bb (C in written staff) to fit Bb trumpet range.

The artist: German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist. Almost completely self-taught in music, he became a composer against his family's wishes. After studying in Magdeburg, Zellerfeld, and Hildesheim, Telemann entered the University of Leipzig to study law, but eventually settled on a career in music. Telemann was and still is one of the most prolific composers in history and was considered by his contemporaries to be one of the leading German composers of the time
