Publisher: Schott Music
Composer: Enjott Schneider
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

The Catalan composer and vihuela player Luis de Milán (1500-1561) ranks among the most important composers of the Spanish Renaissance. His collection El Maestro from 1536 was the first publication of vihuela music in music history (the vihuela is a predecessor of the guitar).

The six pavans contained therein are typical examples of the stately processional dance. According to the etymological derivation of 'pavo' (Spanish/Latin: 'peacock'), this characteristic bird call which can be performed freely and naturalistically by the saxophone player can sometimes be heard in this 'peacock's dance'.

World premiere: 15.2.2017 Ballhaus Berlin, with Domiki Wollenweber (cor anglais) and the saxophone quartet CLAIR OBSCUR.Also published by Schott: a version for alto saxophone (cor anglais) and organ (ED 21260).
