Giovanni Gabrieli's iconic piece for brass ensemble, one the first to ever feature written dynamics, can now be played by a standard string orchestra (or octet).

The antiphonal nature of the original is maintained by having the 1st violins and cellos as one ensemble, and the 2nd violins, violas and double basses as the other. Orchestral seating of violin 1, cello, viola, violin 2 works perfectly for this arrangement, and the score is laid out accordingly.

Whilst the double bass part is a great addition to this arrangement, it can also be played without the bass. A violin 3 part is also included in case no violas are available.

All of Emma's arrangements find creative and artistic ways to re-present original pieces in a way that suits the new instruments and ensemble whilst maintaining the integrity of the original piece.

Emma Butterworth is a composer for film and TV and also a successful Suzuki cello teacher. She has an intimate knowledge of how to write for strings, and has written and arranged a vast number of pieces for cellos and strings especially. All pieces have been played and performed.
