This Sonata was originally scored for solo trumpet and 2 antiphonal string quartets. In this new setting for 7 trumpets and 2 bassoons, the solo trumpet part remains intact and the treble clef string parts are given to the remaining 6 trumpets. The bass clef parts can be performed by bassoons, euphoniums, bass trumpets or trombones. There are four short movements which could be played individually to facilitate a program of trumpet ensemble music. As with many of the trumpet ensemble arrangements available through Eighth Note Publications, there have been bass clef parts given in the keys of D, C and B-flat to allow for performance in any of those keys depending on the choice of trumpet.
