Arranged by Sean Brown, this edition of Giovanni Gabrieli's Canzona per Sonare No. 4 from Canzoni per sonare con ogni sorte di stromenti provides an exciting performance piece for brass sextet. Being one of the most influential musicians during the shift from the Renaissance to the Baroque era, it is no secret that the composer leant himself primarily to vocal and sacred works. However, his Canzona per Sonare No. 4 represents an important turn, not only in the composer's career, but in musical history. Composed in 1608, this piece helped pave the way to what would soon become the new Baroque concerto style, which remains popular to this day.
