A ricercare is defined as an elaborate contrapuntal instrumental composition in a fugal or canonic style. This particular selection for four trumpets fits that description exactly. The musical lines flow from part to part in this haunting slow work. This is a great piece to develop intonation, cohesiveness, and ensemble playing. This would also make a great warmup for a trumpet ensemble.

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
