In Stock. This is an exciting piece based on the Welsh hymn Cwm Rhondda. Fanfares and descants in the trumpets float over the stately tune. The melody flows throughout the ensemble ranging from a smooth lyrical statement of the theme to a brilliant marcato feel. This would make a great opener to a concert. It has been scored for a trumpet ensemble of 7 trumpets (including an optional piccolo part), 2 flugel horns and percussion.
This colourful title aptly combines the basis for the piece and the person it was written for. Tenth grade trumpet player Alex McCarthy would come to quintet rehearsals and, rather than warming up, he would play excerpts from the Denis Di Blasio tune Coconut Champagne which was written for the Maynard Ferguson band. This piece uses the melodic material as a base for this upbeat tune for 4 trumpets, 4 flugel horns, bass and drum set. A written solo has been provided for trumpet.
