Napoli

Napoli by Herman Bellstedt. Arranged by Frank Simon. For Trumpet. Brass Solos & Ensembles - Trumpet And Piano/Organ. Southern Music. Variations on Luigi Denza's 'Funiculi Funicula'. Grade 5. Set of performance parts. 16 pages. Southern Music Company #SS310. Published by Southern Music Company (HL.3773938).

The italian songwriter Luigi Denza (1846-1922) was a prolific composer of songs, of which about 600 survive. 'Funiculi Funicula,' his most popular song, was composed in 1880 to commemorate the opening of a funicular railway. The success of this song was so great (sales of over half a million copies of the sheet music), that the melody was soon heard everywhere, giving rise to the impression that the tune was of ancient origin. When the German composer Richard Strauss quoted the melody in his symphonic poem 'Aus Italien' (From Italy) under the title "Neapolitanisches Volkslied" (Neapolitan Folksong), the publishers were soon threatened with legal action for the violation of copywright. It is not know when the great cornet virtuoso Herman Bellstedt (1858-1926) first conceived the idea of a set of theme and variations on the well-known tune for cornet and band, but it is perhaps his most popular composition. The parts were bequeather to Bellstedt's student (and successor as soloist with Sousa's Band) Frank Simon (1889-1967), and it is Simon's edition of the solo, know under the title 'Napoli,' which is still heard on concert programs today.

  • August 13, 2011 Napoli

    The order was on time; the printing was clean. I took 2 weeks to work out phrase by phrase, then tie it all together. I'm still not hearing the theme in the variations. From both the YouTubes and my own experience, seems more a technical demonstration piece than a...

    tune. The theme itself is of course one of the all time catchiest tunes ever. My background: 4 yrs mostly self-study, just completing Arban (exercises, characteristic etudies and fantasies) (survival, not mastery).
