Brass Quintet – Verdi Brindisi – Libiamo
This famous aria from La Traviata translates very well onto brass. I suppose there’s an affinity between brass players and drinking songs! This is certainly a rousing example. The melody is shared between the 1st Trumpet, Horn and Trombone/Euphonium (Parts 1,3 and 5) as the different singers take their ‘verse’. It is great fun to play with lots of excuses for horseplay amongst the players.
Parts are supplied as follows:
Part 1 in Bb – Trumpet/Cornet
Part 2 in Bb – Trumpet/Cornet
Part 3 in F/Eb – Horn
Part 4 in C/Bb – Trom./Euph./Barit.
Part 5 in C/Eb – Tuba/Eb Bass
