This unique "Gem of the Concert Band" features a brass sextet accompanied by band. A great example of the "bel canto" style of brass performance, your sextet of two trumpets, horn (or trombone/euphonium), two trombones (or euphoniums), and bass trombone will wow audiences! Transcribed from the famous operatic vocal sextet, this brilliant work from the golden age of the concert band is a real crowd-pleaser. Our highest recommendation!
