Versuch eines heroischen Trompeters (Essay of a heroic Trumpeter) takes its title ironi- cally from Johann Ernst Altenburg’s Essay on an introduction to the heroic and musical trum- peters and kettledrummers art of 1795. The book then describes the usual instruments and performance practice of that time. The interesting aspect of instrumentation is in the use of the microtonal trumpet and the double meaning of the German word Versuch as an essay on the one hand and as experiment on the other.
