    Mascagni's Intermezzo - by Monsignor Di Marco

    Monsignor Di Marco from the Music Department at Ponitificate University has done this beautiful arrangement of Pietro Mascagni's Intermezzo from "Cavalleria Rusticana"


    This was all done in notation!
    He used Finale 2005 and Human Playback to realize the entire work.

    The GPO instrumentation for this work was:Piccolo v solo, Flute Plr 2, Oboe 1 Modern Plr 1, BB Clarinet Plr 1, Chromatic Harp 1 Lite, Organ Baroque Plenum, Organ B. P. Pedal, Vlns 1 KS Combo (C & C#), Vlns 2 KS Combo (C & C#), Violas KS Combo (C & C#), Cellos KS Combo (C & C#).

    Pietro Mascagni, was and Italian operatic composer who lived from 1863–1945. He is best known for his opera Cavalleria Rusticana/Rustic Chivalry (of which this demo is a part) and the libretto was written by G Menasci and G Targioni-Tozzetti (based on Giovanni Verga's play) and first produced at the Teatro Costanzi, Rome, Italy, on 17 May 1890. This work becoming an overnight sensation at the time and led the way for the new verismo or realistic style.

    Thank you for sharing this with us Monsignor. This is absolutely beautiful.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    The Monsignor has done a wonderful job with this lovely, lyrical piece -- interpreted with much musicality!

    Mascagni is one of those too often overlooked composers, about whom you may learn more here: http://www.mascagni.org/

    I am, too, so pleased to meet another classical musician who is predominantly scoring via Finale.

    Thank you, Monsignor Di Marco. I look forward to hearing more from you.
