Laid back and freely played, the beginning section of this classic Gershwin Prelude features tasteful weaving of the five parts and distributes melodic material throughout the ensemble. Second trumpet often has the lead throughout the work. Tuba alsohas a significant melodic role in the second, slightly faster section. Moderate range. Intermediate technical demands, but control and maturity are needed. A piccolo trumpet is optional on the first part. A bugle or Flugel Horn is optional on the second trumpet part. Score and parts.
