Jean Sibelius: Cassazione op. 6: transcription for wind band by Robert J. Ambrose
Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) made his first sketches for material that would later find its way into Cassazione at the end of the 1890s; there are already hints of it among the sketches for the First Symphony, completed in 1899. The first performance of Cassazione as the opening number in a concert of his music held at the Helsinki University Hall in February 1904. Robert J. Ambrose’s transcription for wind band is based on the original full symphony orchestra version.
