Composed by Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739), arranged by Donald Little, Richard Nelson. Set of performance parts for tuba and piano. Approved contest/festival piece for the University Interscholastic League. 12 pages. Published by Southern Music Company.
Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) is known today as an Italian composer of opera and instrumental music. This sonata, transcribed for tuba and keyboard, was originally one of six cello sonatas composed in 1732. In addition to piano, harpsichord and organ are well suited for realizing the accompaniment for these sonatas. The transcribers have taken great care to preserve Marcello's intentions by consulting an original edition of the sonatas published by John Walsh in London (c. 1740). The only Changes from Marcello's score involve some of the dynamic and phrasing indications, which were made with the tuba player's specific needs in mind. In the Walsh edition of this sonata, three of the four movements are in two sections, each of which are notated with repeats. Current performance practice usually includes the repetition of only the first section of each movement. If the performer wishes to repeat the second sections as well, it is suggested that he provide contrasts by additional ornamentation and dynamic versions.
