The project “conTRUMPETary“ is an initiative of the two trumpet players Sandro Hirsch and Tobias Krieger. The goal of the project is the promotion of contemporary music for trumpet. During the first year, the focus was on works for trumpet with piano as an accompanying instrument.

The promotion consists of three parts. The first part is an ongoing research, including exchange with trumpeters from all over the world, in order to discover relatively unknown works. The results of this research can be found on the “conTRUMPETary” repertoire list, which is regularly updated and expanded.

The second part consists of the extension of the repertoire through commissioned works.
With the help of private donations and various foundations, we were able to commission a total of six compositions in the first year of the project. These can also be found on the repertoire list, as well as detailed information about the composers.

The last and most complex part is the dissemination of the pieces in the form of professionally produced videos which are then published on our YouTube channel.

It would be a pleasure for us if we could not only promote contemporary literature for our instrument with this project, but also create a network of trumpeters and composers who regularly exchange ideas and enrich each other’s concert programs with good new music.

You can easily contact us at any time via the contact form if you have questions about the works or the procurement of sheet music. You are also very welcome to write to us if you know of further works for our repertoire list or if you would like to support the project financially or through concert engagements.
