Manuel De Falla’s Seven Popular Spanish Songs is an unpretentious and charming work that has proven a favourite for generations of string players and singers. Taz Eddy’s new arrangement for Solo Trumpet and Brass Band finally brings all of the fun and whimsy of Falla’s seven songs to the trumpet.
This arrangement was premiered by Timothy Quinlan with the Beacon Hill Brass in Victoria, British Columbia in the summer of 2010 and is quickly becoming a staple in trumpet recital repertoire. The instrumentation and transposed parts included are listed below.
Solo Trumpet (Bb or C)
2 Trumpets (Bb or C)
2 Horns (F)
