Brass Quintet and Solo Trumpets

 
Concerto for Two Trumpets and Brass
Antonio Vivaldi
 
Arranged by David Marlatt View/Listen
Difficulty: Medium-Difficult Order Code: BQ27273
Duration: 7:15 Price: $25.00

Antonio Vivaldi wrote this work for two natural trumpets and strings and it has become the most popular double concerto for trumpets. The music is simple and elegant, utilizing the non-chromatic capabilities of the natural trumpet. Falling arpeggios, half a scale and fanfare figures throughout the work show Vivaldis skill at taking short simple melodic material and using it throughout a three-movement concerto.

The original string accompaniment has been given to a brass quartet with the remaining trumpet part being performed on flugel horn. Another suggestion is the trombone part be played on euphonium for an even more consistent accompaniment texture.
