for C trumpet and piano
Marinus Komst (1908 – 1997) composed his variations on Carnaval de Venise when he was 20 years old. At that time he played trumpet in the Orchestra of the Tuschinski theatre in Amsterdam. Next to playing music with the orchestra during the movies, he regularly performed solo pieces. He probably wrote and performed these variations on Carnaval de Venise for the first time at the Tuschinski theatre. Although he must have performed this piece more often, there can only be found a review from a concert in 1935 in the Casino in Hilversum during which Komst performed Carnaval de Venise.
The manuscript of this composition was found in the heritage of Marinus Komst by Ralph Henssen, who wrote a biography on Komst. It has never been published before nor has it until now ever been performed by someone else than Komst.
