Flower Duet, from Lakme [Sous le dome epais] (Marlatt)
The most famous selection from Delibes' Lakme. Originally written as a duet for soprano and alto, here transcribed for trumpet sextet. The original duet is performed on trumpets, the next 2 voices perform on cup muted trumpets and the last 2 parts are performed on flugel horns. This creates 3 sets of duets which introduces some interesting colours to the trumpet ensemble.Score & parts. Duration: 2:05 minutes.
