The ararnger writes...

This version is for developing players and only goes up to G above the staff. 

When you look at each phrase in the solo part, it's not really that difficult with a few places where the player, with work, can master the figures. This version would appeal to good middle school players and high schoolers and perhaps adults who play occasionally but lack the solid range above the staff.

My aim was to have a version that gives such players the chance to experience the work without the limits of the upper range. It's such a great piece that as many trumpeters as possible should play it, and this version would open that door for an increasing number to have that experience. In addition, players would experience fewer fracked notes where the high Bbs and Cs appear.

I also added a number of interpretive detail into the solo part to help players with rendering a musical performance.

My former teacher, David Baldwin, who is a legend in the trumpet world, thinks this version is a "great idea!"
