Paint your recital program in glamorous impressionistic colors. For the opening legato-triplets passages and the descending wavy melody in the first arabesque use broad brushstrokes of blue and yellow. Then, for the second arabesque with short and fast triplets, mix small brushstrokes of pure red and green for the highest degree of luminous intensity of your trombone sound spectrum. Your audience will adore your strong expression and magnificent technique

Debussy's Deux Arabesques are equally beautiful, as they are colorful and impressive.

Playing this beautiful piece is not only fun, but also greatly improves technique and agility.

First Arabesque 

  • smooth and fast legato passages, richness of tone colors
  • perfect for building flexibility and stamina

Second Arabesque

  • fast triplets, often over natural slurs, also in a combination with the valve and alternative positions
  • great for building your range, slide technique, agility and articulation

Especially the second Arabesque, I suggest starting to practice in a slow tempo, trying to get the sixteenth note triplets as smooth and light as possible.

I also recommend that you listen to some piano recordings of this work first to get the right phrasing and articulation ideas.

General Note

All the agogic changes are based on my interpretation and a common musical sense

to create an expression and musical flow. Playing along will be beneficial, especially for younger players, and will help to develop a strong musical personality.
