It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: "Trumpet triplets played on the downbeat" Are they?

The triplets that Chris and I are talking about are on the second page of the score marked "fl├╝chtig." In fact the instruction on the bottom of page one seems to indicate that ALL of the triplets in the theme should be played in a somewhat fleeting manner, like military fanfares (I don't read German, so someone please correct me if I'm getting this wrong).

As I beat time, the triplets on page one are on the "and" (fourth quarter-note) of each 2/2 bar. They aren't metronomic, and I don't know of too many trumnpeters who play it that way.
