“Transcribed by popular brass arranger, Robert King, this edition of Giovanni Gabrieli's Canzon Primi Toni provides an exciting performance piece for a large Brass Ensemble. Being one of the most influential musicians during the shift from the Renaissance to the Baroque era, it is no secret that the composer leaned himself primarily to vocal and sacred works. However, his Canzon Primi Toni, as part of the composer's Sacred Symphony, represents an important turn, not only in the composer's career, but in musical history. Composed in 1597, this piece paved the way to what would soon become the new Baroque concerto style, which remains popular to this day. King's arrangement of this historical work is indispensable for Brass Ensembles. &rdquo.
