Product Code : Ernesto De Curtis_02
Come back to Sorrento or "Torna a Surriento" in Italien is a Neapolitan song composed in 1902 by Italian musician Ernesto De Curtis to words by his brother Giambattista De Curtis, who was a poet and painter. The song was copyrighted officially in 1905 and has become one of the most popular songs of this traditional genre, which include others such as "'O sole mio", "Funiculì funiculà", and "Santa Lucia".
"Torna a Surriento" has been sung by a large diversity of performers including Frank Sinatra, Beniamino Gigli, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Jerry Vale, Enrico Caruso, José Carreras, Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Meat Loaf, Mario Lanza, Giuseppe Di Stefano.
There was also a comedy version of the song used by Billy Connolly, in “Saltcoats at the fair".
Claude Aveling wrote the English language lyrics, which are titled "Come Back to Sorrento".
Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman re-arranged it and wrote a new set of lyrics for Elvis Presley ("Surrender").
We would classify this as difficult due to the large range required by the soloist, but we hope that trombone players will consider this as an enjoyable challenge.
This arrangement has been made available for trombone in Bb, but if you would prefer it to be in tenor (and bass clef), then you can do this by modifying the free xml file you would get if your purchased it from our website.
