This original solo for Eb Tenor Horn and brass band, composed by Andrew Duncan, has proved to be a welcome addition the solo repertoire.
Written to demonstrate both the technical and lyrical sides of the Horn, the piece begins with a fast, bright (slightly Latin) section. This gives way to an expressive legato tune which, first played by the Soloist, is then taken up by the whole band. The central section, Andante, allows the soloist to really sing out and, following a short cadenza, the opening material returns to lead into an exciting Coda section.
Also available for Eb Tenor Horn with piano accompaniment and F Horn with piano accompaniment.
Suitable for intermediate to advanced Tenor Horn players. Range: Low F# to high Db. (optional Bb).
NB: The previous working title of Spring’s Awakening has now been re-edited into this final title of Divertimento.
