Gabriel Grovlez: Sicilienne Et Allegro Giocoso (Bassoon/Piano)

Books | Bassoon, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Gabriel Grovlez
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Gabriel Grovlez (1879-1944) studied under Gabriel Fauré at the Paris Conservatoire. His compositions proved to be extremely versatile, from Operas and Ballets to solo works. Grovlez's Sicilienne Et Allegro Giocoso is a sublime addition to the Bassoon repertoire.

Much of the composer's works show neo-classical features, which is also the case inSicilienne Et Allegro Giocoso, where the texture is predominantly melody dominated homophony, cadences are frequently heard and modulations to related keys occur, despite tonality being interestingly exploited. Grovlez's C minor Sicilienne is unusual in style as it is composed in common time, yet the triplets and sextuplets in the Bassoon part provide the 'tarantella feel' required of the musical genre. This is superbly contrasted by the quirky Allegro Giocoso, (fast and cheerful) composed in the relative major. All these features make for an enjoyable and delightful performance!

          Northampton GB Parent buying music needed.
          Making reviews of sheet music that we have to buy because music teachers say we need it for exams or performances is largely pointless. It's not like weighing up the pros and cons of which TV we may choose.
          We have to have this music as part of requirements, so we get it. End of!
          See the above.
          I telephoned the firm concerned to check delivery date, they were polite & helpful. In fact it turned up much quicker than expected.
