Abstract:
The purpose of this research is to create an awareness of the significant contributions to the solo and chamber trumpet literature made by Jiří Laburda (b. 1931), a twentieth-century composer from the Czech Republic. Laburda has an extensive oeuvre including 22 solo pieces for trumpet and accompaniment, four pieces for two or more trumpets, two collections of trumpet duets, eight brass chamber works including at least one trumpet, and six works for brass quintet. Select pieces by Laburda for trumpet and piano lend themselves to pedagogical uses for the instruction of beginning and intermediate trumpet students, and thus provide a valuable repertory of teaching pieces that could help prepare students to play standard repertory such as the Haydn and Hummel concerti for trumpet. This document provides annotated pedagogical analyses of four compositions by Jiří Laburda including Diarium (a five-volume set of short technical studies for trumpet and piano), Peter with Trumpet, Sonatina for Trumpet, and Sonata for Trumpet. The four works have been selected from various levels of difficulty to illustrate Laburda's method of sequential progression in writing for different stages of the developing trumpet student. Each analysis explains how the composition is of particular value for trumpet students and for what purpose(s) the piece can be used pedagogically. The analyses contain various exercises and suggestions to help students practice and prepare these pieces for performance.
