Jean-Joseph Mouret: Fanfare Rondo (Elementary)

• The melody line in the right hand is for trumpet in the original music. Imagine a stately, majestic trumpet sound as you play.
• The left-hand bass line supports the melody.
• Practice slowly until you can maintain a very steady, strong beat. Then move gradually to a performance tempo.
• Whatever the tempo, keep it very steady throughout.
• The end of measure 16 begins the “B” middle section. In the original orchestration the violins took the melody here. Make a contrast by quickly shifting to p.
• A crescendo leads into the return of the opening theme in measures 23–24.
