INTRODUCTORY NOTES BY DAVID
These three ocarina septets were written
for Giorgio Pacchioni and the ocarina septet he played with, "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 have been performed in Midi format to accompany a dance sequence
by Vada at the Dance House Theatre, Manchester, UK, but I have yet to hear
a live performance on real ocarinas.
