This is the most famous section from Delibes' Lakmé. Originally written as a duet for soprano and alto, it is now a great piece for 6 trumpets.The original duet is performed on trumpets, the next 2 voices perform on cup muted trumpets and the last 2 parts are performed on flugel horns. This creates 3 sets of duets which introduces some very interesting colours to the trumpet ensemble. The flowing duet lines and graceful and elegant phrases make this an great addition to the repertoire.
