The vibrant walking out piece for Germany’s football club Eintracht Frankfurt, Light Cavalry Overture perfectly encapsulates both precise military stature and energetic horseback riding. Although the Operetta is rarely performed, this overture stands the test of time being performed regularly amongst orchestras all over the world.
This music perfectly suits a trumpet ensemble, and was arranged for the ensemble of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Birmingham Conservatoire ensembles, then scaled down for students on the National Children’s Orchestra and Hertfordshire County Youth Brass Band players.
