Alexander Goedicke was a Russian pianist and composer. Although he was a professor at the Moscow Conservatoire, Goedicke had received no formal training as a composer and his success and recognition in this field was achieved through competition entries, namely the Rubinstein Prize for Composition which he won at the tender age of 23.
Regardless of his academic qualifications, his output as a composer is substantial with recognised works including four operas, twelve extensive works for orchestra, four marches for concert band, countless chamber works and compositions for piano.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of Goedicke's music has fallen out of vogue and is rarely performed apart from his Concert Etude for trumpet with piano accompaniment which was written in 1948. This firm favourite of the trumpet repertoire has now been arranged for brass quartet by David Childs and can be performed on either trumpet or cornet.
