“Born in Toulouse, Marcel Bitsch (1921-2011) went on to study at the Paris Conservatoire before becoming a professor of counterpoint at the institution. As an exceptionally versatile composer, Bitsch has composed orchestral works, chamber works and numerous pieces and studies for wind instruments. Four Variations on a Theme by Domenico Scarlatti is a significant addition to the Trumpet and Cornet repertoire. Suited to advanced level trumpeters and cornetists, Bitsch's Four Variations on a Theme by Domenico Scarlatti includes a variety of technical aspects as well as sublime musicality. In his latter years, Bitsch dedicated himself to the analysis of music by the Baroque masters. It is clear that his inspiration for Four Variations on a Theme by Domenico Scarlatti comes from his passion for and interest in the era. The variety of this exciting Bitsch piece is outstanding, creating a necessary, inspiring addition to the Trumpet and Cornet repertoire.”
