Gounod, Charles – Three Romances Without Words for Tuba or Bass Trombone and Piano.
Gounod's Three Romances Without Words arranged for Tuba or Bass Trombone by Ralph Sauer are taken from a group of five similarly named "Romances Without Words" originally composed for Piano solo between 1861 and 1866. Four of them were later arranged for Violin and Piano.
The three movements are titled:
1. The Periwinkle (La Pervenche)
2. The Brook (Le Ruisseau)
3. The Evening (Le Soir)
The three movements, are very lyrical, beautifully arranged, about 8 minutes in length and are perfect repertoire for intermediate and higher level performers to begin to learn the finer points of phrasing. The highest note is F-flat above the staff.
