Romantic. Classic virtuoso showpiece. Arban's variations on Carnival of Venice requires no introduction to cornet or trumpet players. This arrangement for quintet keeps the solo cornet part in its original form, but inserts an introduction and interludestaken from operas by Giuseppe Verdi that allow each of the quintet members to act as soloist during the interludes between variations. A great twist on this classic solo. Score & parts. -the publisher (score & trumpet 1 solo part sample pages)...
