Concertutti is a triple concerto for 3 Bb trumpets (with optional flugelhorn) and concert band. The solo parts are advanced, technical, difficult, and hugely fun to play! The band parts are modest in range and difficulty, designed to be playable by a good high school band. Duration: 11'00".

Concertutti is a portmaneau, a made-up word combining “concerto” (a composition for one or more soloists with a large ensemble) and “tutti” (everyone). To my knowledge this is the first concerto for three trumpets to have been composed in the past 250 years. (The only other triple concertos in the repertoire are one by J.S. Bach and two by Antonio Vivaldi.) The world premiere is scheduled for the Northwest Passage Trumpet Trio with the Grove City College wind ensemble in 2019.

Performance Notes:

Performance time: 11’15”

There are several other versions available. Each alternate version is also available as a solo for one trumpet and the respective ensembles:
Concertutti Symphonia – for three solo trumpets and orchestra
Concertutti Grosso – for three solo trumpets and symphonic concert band
Concertutti Meno – for three solo trumpets and piano
