Verdi was commissioned to write the opera 'Aida' in 1871 to commemorate the opening of the Suez Canal. Its profound musical themes and sensational orchestral coloring still appeal to today's audiences. This popular March theme, with many triplet figures and a dramatic melody, will challenge your players to focus their attention on articulation and phrasing. Your drummers will enjoy playing the exciting percussion part, too. (Grade 1).
