This arrangement opens with open sections of quiet "bumblebees" (cup muted trumpets) with an number of trumpets playing orchestral excerpts. These are at the discretion of the players and can range from the opening of "Pictures" to excerpts involving 4+ trumpets. After a short "Also Sprach Zarathustra" opening, the expected "Flight of the Bumblee" arrives. This introduction can be omitted and the traditional piece can be played in its entirety. (2:45)
