The title Ballo del granduca refers to an Italian dance from La Pellegrina by Emilio de Cavalieri (arund 1550-1602) which was performaed at the marriage of Grand Duke Ferdinand of Tuscany to Christine of Lorraine. The dance appears in many different arrangements by composers such as Frescobaldi...Even though Sweelincks version is considered to be his most famous work, new research has revealed compelling evidence that the composer may actually have been his student Samuel Scheidt...The variations...lend themselves naturally for an arrangement for recorder quartet with a virtuosic upper voice and attractive passage work for the bass. - (arr.) Joris van Goethem
