The Carnival of Venice


Jean Baptiste Arban, composer

The composer’s name is known to every brass player as the author of the most famous method for brass playing ever written. One of Arban’s compositions for the trumpet was the famous Carnival of Venice, which appeared in his method book published in 1864. The derivation of these variations is from violin virtuoso and composer Niccolo Paganini who lived from 1782-1840.
