Publications by Jean-Pierre Kemmer

Our publication effort of the musical heritage of Jean-Pierre Kemmer continues with a work expected by many amateurs of the trumpet, his concerto. LMP publishes three different versions, to begin with that one for trumpet and piano, the reduction having been written by the composer himself, the version for trumpet and symphonic orchestra as well as an adaptation, by André Reichling, for trumpet and wind orchestra. The trumpet part also exists in two versions, for trumpet in C and trumpet Bb.

The publication of his concerto for horn and orchestra follows the same procedure. Important remark however, the revisers Francis Orval and Jean-Claude Braun proposed to transpose the whole work a second lower tone to better respond to the tessitura of the instrument.

At the same time, LMP also publishes his Elegiy for solo piano, a work which was in 1984 a set piece for the superior degree examination of the conservatory of Esch / Alzette.

His symphonic suite “Un dimanche matin à Luxembourg” is published in an adaptation, by André Reichling, for wind orchestra.

Finally, Kemmer’s music for choir is not forgotten either with the Pater Noster for SATB and piano, ad libitum strings, the Requiem for a forced conscript, SATB choir and organ and a work also for SATB choir Im Schmiedefeuer, aus Frühlichter, a poem by Nikolaus Welter
