Venezuelan Brass Ensemble
Zequinha de Abreu's composition for brass ensemble musically depicts a sassy "tico-tico" (little bird) who wants to eat up all the "fuba" (grain) in the silo. This catchy melody became the Brazilian composer's greatest hit, which enjoyed popularity throughout Latin America and beyond.
Thomas Clamor conducted the Venezuelan Brass Ensemble in an arrangement for solo trumpet and brass ensemble by John Ivenson.
