For Flexible Trio - Quartet + Percussion
composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
arranged by Kouichirou Oguni
Publisher：Golden Hearts Publications（ONSA）
“Contradanza” is one of Spanish Dances, and also one of country dances, which are included by folk dances. “Five Contradanza”, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, may not be so famous, but, quite interesting work; for instance, No.1 is a diverted piece of “Non piu andrai, farfallone amoroso”, one of aria from “The Marriage of Figaro”.
When I was in my high school and university, I belonged to wind orchestra club, and I met many precious friends. When I write flexible ensemble works, I always hope that, “friends, instruments, and music, which you meet in bands (especially in school bands), will be your best friends for life.”
I truly hope that my flexible ensemble works will be good repertories for small bands.
Remarks on Play:
Part 4 and Percussion are optional part, and without those parts, 3 players can play this work. On the other hand, including Part 4 and Percussion, performance by more than 5 players is available. On some places, ossias of other parts are on part score, so they may be played by your choice. And;
・On original score, there are no tempo indications. Consequently, I put M.M. for your reference, but they are just for your information.
・Repeat is as you like. [Alternativo] on No.4 means “you can repeat any times you require”.
The beginning => [Alternativo I (Repeat as you like)] => D.C. => the beginning =>
[Alternativo II (Repeat as you like)] => D.C. => the beginning =>
[Alternativo III (Repeat as you like)] => D.C. => Fine.

Except ossias, when notation is too high or too low on your instrument, you can change octave, according to your situations.
