"Raindrop" Prelude, Opus 28, No. 15By Frédéric Chopin / arr. David Marlatt Brass Quintet Score & Parts Level: Medium-Difficult Item: 81-BQ10346
The "Raindrop" Prelude is the longest in Chopin's set of twenty four. The trumpets both play flugel horns at one point to create a dark and extremely well-blended sound. The use of repeat signs in the middle (rather than writing out each section as in the original) means the work can be shortened significantly from the original if desired.
