In Stock. This is a standard piece in solo trumpet repertoire that is used on countless festivals and competitions. Ropartz was a French composer who studied with César Franck. The terrific contrast between the slow lyrical playing and the bright fanfares makes this piece a great one for demonstrating everything the trumpet can do. The original was scored for cornet and piano and this arrangement for band allows for a wider range of timbres in the accompaniment.
La Virgen de la Macarena is a traditional bullfighting song made famous by the great trumpet virtuoso Rafael Mendez. Many great players have performed this standard trumpet solo including Doc Severinson and The Canadian Brass. However the arranger's favourite version is a recording by Mr. Vincent Di Martino with the Band of the Battle Creek. There has been a short introduction added quoting part of Bizet's Carmen. This introduction serves to set up both the soloist and the famous "bull" tune. Olé!
