Unaccompanied literature has been gaining a world-wide reputation and importance in the trumpet performance repertoire. This study examined how analysis of these pieces contributed not only to the knowledge of the performer, but to the performance itself. Three compositions were analyzed in this document: Variation Movements (1967) by Robert Henderson (b. 1948), Sonatina (1974) by Hans Werner Henze (b. 1926) and Calls and Echoes (unpublished) by Verne Reynolds (b. 1926). These composers used a variety of compositional devices that were discussed in detail and showed how knowledge of these techniques benefited the performer. Variation Movements was derived from a nine-note motive that was utilized throughout the piece. The Sonatina incorporated set classes and twelve-tone serialism. Calls and Echoes also utilized set classes as well as motivic development. The first chapter of this document provides a discussion of unaccompanied trumpet literature and previous scholarly research on the topic. The second chapter focuses on Robert Henderson’s Variation Movements. The third chapter examines Hans Werner Henze’s Sonatina and the fourth chapter studies Verne Reynolds’ Calls and Echoes. The concluding chapter provides a summary. Advisor: Darryl White
