Canzona per Sonare No 4, Ch.189 (Marlatt) [211.00]
Renaissance. There have been many recordings of the famous Gabrieli canzoni for various combinations of brass instruments. This arrangement for brass quartet is a welcome addition to this repertoire. Antiphonal spacing is always a successful performance practice allowing the passing of melodic material to be enhanced by the spatial distance. Transposed down a whole step from the original to Bb from C. Rhythmic values have been halved from that of the original (e.g. opening figure is Q-EE instead H-QQ). (2:10) -the publisher/cdp
For 211.00 brass quartet (2 trumpets, horn, trombone).
