Song Without Words
With parts not too demanding, this solo suits up-and-coming cornet players that would like the chance to fulfil their moment in the spotlight. The gentle ballad flow of the solo would work well at any concert occasion and is open to youth bands as well as more seasoned senior bands.
This work combines the famous melodies of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and “Brahm’s Lullaby”. Playable by most standards of bands, this slow melodic piece fits easily into any concert program and provides a chance to showcase lyrical solo playing and delicate accompaniment skills.
