A showpiece for the piccolo trumpet. The soaring coloratura solo has been transposed down a step to facilitate the brass quintet. While the piccolo is playing Fs above high C, the remainder of the ensemble is supporting with avery playable accompaniment that has been reduced from the orchestral part. Although the solo piccolo trumpet (or alternate E-flat trumpet) part is demanding in range, the other parts should not prove to be difficult to coordinate. This classical favourite will amaze audiences and perhaps give them a good introduction to the piccolo trumpet.
