Helicon Solo - Chanson de matin (Arr Sibley)

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Chanson de matin Op.15 No.2 - Arr Graham Sibley

The Helicon, also known as the Cavalry Horn, is a circular brass instrument which wraps arond the body - over one arm and under the other - in much the same way as a Sousaphone. Thus, it lends itself well to being carried and was much in demand by marching and military bands in the nineteenth century. Elgar would no doubt have raised an eye-brow, and a smile, at this arrangement of his original for violin and piano.
