Canzon a 12


Andreas Simbeni




Show note example

Andreas Simbeni’s arrangement of Giovanni Gabrieli’s “Canzon à 12” for twelve horns is a musical journey through time that transposes one of the most spectacular works of the Venetian late Renaissance into the present day. This piece, originally written for a large group of wind instruments, is characterized by Gabriel’s distinctive polyphonic texture and contrasting dynamic sections, which are masterfully recreated in Simbeni’s arrangement for a horn ensemble.

The challenge of transferring Gabriel’s complex soundscapes to twelve horns was mastered by Simbeni with great care and respect for the original. The players are introduced to the fascinating world of antiphonal music, in which the individual voices shine both in their interplay and in their soloistic development. This arrangement offers a wealth of tonal colors and a rich palette of dynamic possibilities that are both challenging and rewarding for the horn ensemble.

Ideal for concerts, competitions and special musical events, the “Canzon à 12” offers an excellent opportunity to celebrate Gabriel’s musical excellence and creative spirit. This piece is an outstanding addition to the repertoire of advanced horn ensembles looking for a challenging and historically significant work that will impress listeners with its timeless beauty and majestic sound.
