I am in the process of resurrecting Bach's Brandenburg Concerto 2 which I haven't performed for a few years. My question is for you baroque trumpet specialists. For example at bar 74 in the first movement are those tied 1/8th (quavers) notes performed with a huffing breath (pulsating the air stream) or
with a soft articulation ('du' tongue)?

I highly suspect you won’t get many replies posting this here. This is probably more appropriate for the fundamentals or orchestral forums.

A PM to the user Moderators can get it moved for you.

As I understand things, based on my study and training waaaaay back last century, it is huffed, an air based emphasis with no use of the tongue. At the end of the day, it just needs to sound good.

Cheers

Andy

Yes, huffed. But not if you're playing a modern trumpet.

Different techniques may be needed when using a modern vs baroque or natural trumpet.

I’ve used the ‘huffing’ technique in baroque works on modern instruments many times. There is no difference in technique at all.
