The Trumpet in the Work of Johann Sebastian Bach

The following article is a small analytical contribution of literature for trumpet throughout the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Learn about Gottfried Reiche, the trumpeter who had the fortune of inaugurating most of the composer's work for this instrument, view the most common trumpets of that time and the connection of factors that allowed an immortal legacy of instrument building during the height of the baroque trumpet era, and what would become of great importance for the future development of this instrument. See, one by one, the cantatas, oratorios, suites and the other sixty-five compositions where the trumpet appears, as well as a brief symbolic analysis and catalogue. This is an enthusiastic perspective, from a trumpeter’s point of view, who admires and rejoices in such works of art; works that are exalted and eternal. There is always a beneficial gift after performing the music autographed by Bach.
