William Rimmer’s Old Kentucky Home is a classic Theme and Variations cornet solo. The theme is wistful and nostalgic, the variations playful and not too difficult. In fact, although the variations require quick fingers and offer the possibilities of using multiple tongue, the range doesn’t extend beyond concert G above the staff.
This piece would be perfect for any intermediate trumpet players who wish to enter concerto competitions and play in front of a full band.
