This rousing and original arrangement starts with the trumpet alone playing Abblasen Fanfare and moves into Trumpet Voluntary and variations.  This is a rousing, virtuoso arrangement that opened many Anthony and Beard concerts.

Abblasen is a trumpet fanfare attributed to Gottfried Reiche. In Haussmann's famous portrait of Reiche, he is seen holding a scrap of paper with two lines of melody written on it. Abblasen is a reconstruction of what appears to be on the manuscript in Haussmann's painting. 

The Prince of Denmark's March, commonly known as the "Trumpet Voluntary", was composed by Jeremiah Clarke around 1699. For many years the piece was incorrectly attributed to his more well-known contemporary, Henry Purcell. According to some sources, the march was originally written in honor of George, Prince of Denmark, the consort of the then Princess, later Queen Anne of Great Britain. The march is very popular as wedding music and was played during the wedding of Lady Diana and Prince Charles.

For Piccolo Trumpet in A

March 2022 / ITG Journal

The Reiche/Clarke piece opens with the popular Abblasen Fanfare, often heard on CBS's Sunday Morning as an introduction to the infamous Trumpet Voluntary. This challenging arrangement covers a wide range from low c' to g" above the staff on a piccolo trumpet in A. Within the Trumpet Voluntary, Anthony and Beard have brilliantly ornamented the melody in eighth notes, triplets, and sixteenth notes before ending with a return to the original melody.
