Alfred Music Publishing is the worlds largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational, reference, pop, and performance materials for teachers, students, professionals, and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument, style, and difficulty level. La Virgin de la Macarena is a traditional bullfighting song made famous by the great trumpet virtuoso Raphael Mendez. This version features a solo trumpet accompanied by 3 trumpets and 2 flugel horns and percussion. All the flashy pyrotechnics in the original solo part are present with the supporting sound being trumpets rather than brass quintet, band or orchestra. In setting the tone for this arrangement a short introduction is included which quotes Bizets Carmen and features a short cadenza and some requisite high notes. A guaranteed audience favourite!
