Gran Concertante

The title, “Gran Concertone,” the composer no doubt chose to reflect the fact that this original composition is a remarkable display piece for the wind band. The level of difficulty in the solo parts is astonishing even by today’s standards.

Gio­van­ni Paci­ni (1796–1867) was one of the most pro­lif­ic opera com­posers in music his­to­ry, hav­ing com­plet­ed more than 70 operas. He was well known in his time, as is evi­denced on the title page of the man­u­script score where a copy­ist has writ­ten that this “Orig­i­nale” work for band was com­posed “del Cel: Mo: Paci­ni,” which means “the cel­e­brat­ed Mae­stro Paci­ni.”

The title, “Gran Con­cer­tone,” the com­pos­er no doubt chose to reflect the fact that this orig­i­nal com­po­si­tion is a remark­able dis­play piece for the wind band. The lev­el of dif­fi­cul­ty in the solo parts is aston­ish­ing even by today’s stan­dards.
