Zequinha De Abreu: Tico Tico (Trumpet And Piano)

Books | Trumpet, Piano Accompaniment

Composer: Zequinha Abreu
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Brazilian composer Zequinha Abreu’s most renowned piece of traditional choro music, Tico Tico is guaranteed to transform any concert setting into a vibrant Rio de Janeiro street party! Composed in 1917, Tico Tico is a fun-loving Latin-style allegro with an 11-bar slow, rubato section towards the end, arranged by John Iverson for Trumpet or Cornet in Bb with Piano accompaniment. The Trumpet part is included separately as well. With a performance time of ca. 3:50 this cheerful tune is easily added to any Trumpet repertoire.

Choro or chorinho is a popular Brazilian music genre originating in 19th century Rio. Considered the first characteristically Brazilian genre of urban popular music it is the equivalent of styles like ragtime in the United States, tango in Argentina and habanera in Cuba which emerged around the same time as well. Despite its name (which translates to ‘lament’) the music is usually fast, with a happy rhythm, characterised by virtuosity, improvisation and subtle modulations, full of syncopation and counterpoint.
