From Mendelssohn’s romantic collection of Songs Without Words, the melody from this stunning piano movement transfers beautifully onto trumpet and trombone. The piano provides the undulating triplets as the two melody instruments are free to phrase the simple singing lines. This arrangement is perfect for any recital and a rare opportunity for Trumpet and Trombone to perform together with piano.
