Gabrieli Canzone Arranged for Cello Quintet

Edited by Hans Erik Deckert

 Canzone (for Cello Quintet)
Composer: Giovanni Gabrieli
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Hans Erik Deckert
Instrumentation: Violoncello Ensemble
Pages: 4 for the score, 5 for the violoncello parts

This Canzone is a testament to Gabrieli’s virtuosic polyphonic writing. The many small motives flowing from voice to voice manages through the independence of each part to create a beautiful unified balance. The fascinating aspect is that it all sounds so natural and obvious. This work was originally conceived for both strings and winds. It is essential to adjust the sound and the playing style to this period.
