Gianoncelli Bergamasca piano transcription by Respighi

Postby grdr » Sat Jan 05, 2008 2:00 pm

Hi,
There's a wonderful Bergamasca "il Bernardello" piece on the Naxos CD with Respighi's ancient airs and dances. Apparently it is a piano transcription from an original lute work by Gianoncelli. Does anyone know where to get a copy?

Check with the original publisher of the orchestral suites (Antiche danze ed arie per liuto), Ricordi, or their US distributor, Hal Leonard.

Thank you! However, when searching the net I find the "standard" book containing six pieces from the Antiche Arie..., but the one (Bergamasca "il Bernardello") I'm looking for seems to be really elusive.

Yes, I see what you mean. The 1919 publication of this work included only 6 of the 8 on the disc you mention, which were then reprinted by both Dover and Master's Music. I'm looking into these last 2 pieces (Campanae parisiennses and the Bergamasca) and will let you know what I find out.

Oh, thank you very much, I appreciate it! (My wife keeps asking me to play this piece...)

Hi, I assume you are looking for the piano transcription instead the full orchestral score. Like you've said, thiece piece is quite difficult to find, with no entries found in the Kalmus, Ricordi and sheetmusicplus catalogues.
However, there is a score of Bergamasca by Giononcelli arranged by Gourley for brass band, which is available in sheetmusicplus:

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for though.

Hi, daphnis,
Is the Dover reprint of the ancient airs you mentioned earlier this edition:

http://store.doverpublications.com/0486452921.html

Since, there are no table of contents, I don't know if all 8 pieces are included, but since you mentioned that only 6 of the 8 are included, that means we have to search elsewhere.

Yes. It only contains 6 of the 8 airs and dances as does the Master's reprint.

Thank you all for your efforts. I'll try to contact the pianist on the Naxos CD and possibly someone in the Respighi society to find the Bergamasca-in-hiding.

Hi grdr,
I found an edition of Bergamasca composed by Gianoncelli (not the Respighi transcription) arranged for guitar -

This is the closest I've got, still searching the vast ocean that is the Internet...

Well, I haven't heard anything back from the few people I contacted, however I did manage to track down and obtain the second suite (containing the Bergamasca) arranged by Respighi for piano 4 hands and can make this available to you if you wish. Creating a solo piano reduction from there shouldn't be too big of an issue. I also got the original publication (Master's reprint) of the first suite for solo piano. I'll be posting both of these to IMSLP soon.

I am certainly interested of the 4-hand version! It may be possible that Scherbakov has made a 2-h transcription for himself?

I found a site where the sheet music for Bergamasca under the second suite of Ancient Airs and Dances (Antiche danze ed arie per liuto) by Ottorino Respighi are listed:

http://www.ottorinorespighi.it/catalogo_db.php?gruppo=4

The second suite should contain Bergamasca if the individual titles of the suite are not specified. Unfortunately, most of them are the full scores or transcribed for band. There doesn't seem to be a piano transcription of the second suite.
