About this exposition

Name: Patrice Boileau Main Subject: Baroque Trumpet Research Coach: Bart van Oort Title of Research: Hoftrompeter in central Germany Research Question: What would have been the professional life of court trumpet players in Thuringia/central Germany from 1650 to 1750? What kind of music did they play? Summary of Results: The baroque era seemed to have been the apogee of the art of trumpet playing by slowly raising it to an instrument of art. The instrument become part of an elite, where only few people could play it well and had the right to do so. In this paper I aim to illustrate the life and role of trumpet players at court, in parallel to those of other court musicians and the Stadtpfeifer. By the numerous courts present in central Germany, the trumpet seems to have blossomed with a variety of composers writing for the instrument. What was the court life for a musician, what were the daily duties of the trumpeters, would they only play music, would they mix with the other musicians and how were their relations with the others? Those are all questions that I addressed in this paper. At the end of my paper you can find a list of composers active in central Germany that composed for the trumpet and my own edition of two pieces by one of these composers. Biography: Patrice Boileau is a young and dynamic trumpet and cornetto player native of the Province of Québec in Canada. After his studies at the Conservatoire de musique de Québec, he completed an Artist Diploma in orchestral performance at The Glenn Gould School. Patrice is currently completing a master in baroque trumpet at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague with Susan Williams. Patrice has performed with several group in eastern Canada, such as the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, Quebec City’s opera house, National Academy Orchestra, Sinfonia Toronto, the Sneak Peak Orchestra and the True North Brass. His passion for early music brought him recently to play with European ensemble such as Brabantsch Musyk Collegie, Elbipolis Barockorchester, The New Dutch Academy, The Wallfisch Band, Apollo Ensemble, Il Gardellino, and Les Agémens.
