    Corelli - Sonata V No. 7

    Corelli composed the Sonata V No. 7 as a string quartet. However, its form lends itself well to other performing formats as well. Here I have set it to both saxophone quartet and low brass quartet using the CMB library. Each ensemble will perform the entire work; Prelude, Courante, Sarabande and Gigue.

    Nice contrast between these 2. I can easily see why both could be performed in one sitting.

    I think I prefer the second, but can give no valid reason for saying so.

    Well done

    Gary:

    Interesting experiment........I think I enjoyed the brass
    more than the saxophones also.

    What Gary needs to do is include some "Medieval Instruments"
    in one of his libraries. Maybe a "sacbut" or two........lol

    Very nice scoring, Gary.

    Ron,

    I agree it's a tough call between the two. They each have their own merit. But I am glad you stopped by to hear them.

    Jack,

    Glad you enjoyed the experiment. Maybe Gary G could create an Ancient Music LIbrary

    As with all your brass arrangements, I thoroughly enjoyed these Gary. I think the 'higher pitched' first arrangement was my favourite. It possessed a somewhat more choral and keyboard-like quality which helped to emphasize the glorious contrapuntal qualities of Corelli's work. Maybe, a combination of both for maximum effect?

    Thanks for posting these - a rewarding listening experience in both formats.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Thanks for listening Graham. The saxophones give a little more inherence choral quality I agree. But for the low brass it seems to work well too. It is like comparing a SATB choir to a men's AABB choir. It does take a little getting used to.

    With Jack, I particularly liked the brass arrangement, Gary --
    for its greater depth, and, at least to my ear, its energy
    and clarity of line and color. In live performance, though,
    I do think the saxophones version would be quite successful,
    as well.

    Nice job on these!

    My best,

    Thanks David. I have not yet decided which of the two I prefer as each have their own merit. But I am glad that you enjoyed them and as always appreciate your comments.
