One of the most memorable melodies ever written, this Puccini masterpiece is wonderfully adapted for band by Jay Bocook. The opening theme is presented by a solo baritone (cued for trumpet or oboe) followed by soaring statements for woodwinds and horn. The trumpets are added as the pieces build towards the climactic ending. (2:15).
