Canzoni were pieces composed for various combinations of instruments and various sizes of ensembles. This particular work was originally for four oboes and four bassoons. It has been adapted for 6 trumpets and this new instrumentation allows for further performances of this piece. Antiphonal spacing is always a successful performance practice allowing 3 pairs of trumpets to imitate and pass melodic material between them.
