In Stock. This Rondeau by Jean Joseph Mouret is recognized today as the opening theme song to Masterpiece Theatre. This famous trumpet solo features the first trumpet section in the band. Alternating sections between brass choir (plus some covering parts) and the complete band make this piece a fun one to play. Rondeau is an audience favourite and this stately piece is sure to be known by all. With typical Baroque articulations and sudden dynamic contrasts, this piece is excellent for not only featuring a section, but working on tight ensemble playing.
This arrangement introduces students to one of the most famous sets of music ever written. This provides the opportunity to briefly discuss Handel, the Baroque era or other musical aspects that will broaden their understanding. The variety in tempos and the tuneful melodies have made the Water Music a favourite of audiences since the first performance. The movements selected from the three Suites to form this new Suite are Minuet, Air, and Allegro.
