GUAMI, Gioseffo / arr. NAKAMURA, Takashi : Brass Octet

Two eight-voice cansons composed by Gioseffo Guami were selected from the instrumental music collection Canzoni per sonare (36 songs in total) compiled by Alessandro Raverii and published in Venice in 1608. Two groups consisting of two trumpets and two trombones interact with each other, but each first voice has a transcendental passage, which is a highlight. The speed specifications listed are for reference only, but it would be better not to be slower than this tempo.
