Cornet & Trumpet in B-flat with Piano accompaniment - advanced
Composed by Jean-Baptiste Arban. Arranged by Ray Kirkham. 19th Century Brass solo. Solo parts and Piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2748).
Item Number: CY.CC2748
The Carnival of Venice by Arban is possibly the most well-known and often performed solo in the Trumpet/Cornet literature. This arrangement by Ray Kirkham for a duo of Cornet and Trumpet (or two Trumpets or Cornets) with Piano accompaniment captures the essence of the virtuosic work and includes the famous Theme with 5 Variations.
Mr. Kirkham has included a performance suggestion that includes some optional acting by the performers. His experience in performing his arrangement over the years with his late colleague Thomas Parriott was always highly entertaining to the audience.
For advanced performers, this 5-minute work will dazzle your audience and give you much satisfaction in rehearsal and performance. Both parts are in B-flat transposition.
