Featuring Ocarinas Back to woodwind page

These three ocarina septets were written for Giorgio Pacchioni and the ocarina septet with whom he played:  "Novecento".  

They are carefully worked out to ensure that the notes are within the range of the seven different ocarinas of a typical ensemble and those ocarinas which “transpose” have their parts ready transposed in the score.  


All three pieces were performed in Midi format in 2000 to accompany a dance sequence by Vada at the Dance House Theatre, Manchester, UK, I have made a video of one of these:
