Imitato
"I recently purchased Imitato through Brass Music net. I find the arrangement itself is very well done and the quality of the score and parts is excellent. I would recommend not only it to other performers but on the basis of this product, recommend Brass Music Online to them as well. For me, the download possibility, instead of waiting for a mail delivery of a score and parts, is also especially appealing as many times I find the mail&handling charges to be 2-3 times the cost of the piece of music."

Product Information

Bach, J. S. – Capriccio BWV 992, "On the Departure of a Beloved Brother" for 6-part Trombone Ensemble.

Capriccio in B-flat, BWV 992 is an early keyboard work, first performed at age 19 when his brother Johann Jacob travelled to become an oboist in the army of Charles XII of Sweden. The 12-minute work is appropriate for advanced performers.

Dr. Marcellus has dedicated his arrangement to the memory of the late Steve Witser, his former student and colleague who was Principal Trombonist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

In his arrangement Marcellus has split the music into a two 3-part Trombone choirs each with two tenor Trombones and a bass Trombone.

The work is separated into six sections titled:

1. Arioso: Adagio - His friends try to persuade him not to undertake the journey

2. Andante - His friends tell him of the various misfortunes that may befall him abroad

3. Adagiosissimo - The general lament of his friends

4. Andante con moto- His friends come, since they see that it must be, and take leave of him

5. Posthorn Aria

6. Fugue in Imitation of the Posthorn.
