Trumpets of Eire (An Irish Theme)

Elia, Anthony J.

One of three short melodies written for trumpeter Paul Sorenson in Chicago, IL, in 2010. Each of these short works is based on traditional thematic sounds from a specific culture. The three short melodies (for B-flat trumpet) in this set include: 1) Farewell, My Ragusa! (A Sicilian Ballad for Trumpet), 2) Trumpets of Eire (An Irish Theme), and 3) A Drink in Toledo (For a Trumpet in Spain!). Performers may perform this at their discretion, and it is encouraged to adapt and arrange the melodies to various mixtures of instruments and instrumentation.
