L’Armenent, from Heldenmusik (12 Heroic Marches) (string quartet)
Title: L’Armenent from Heldenmusik (12 Heroic Marches, No. 5)
Composer: Georg Philipp Telemann, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: Though the title may seem combative, the meaning of “l’armement” is armor rather than weaponry, giving a connotation of protection and readiness rather than aggression. Musically speaking L’Armenent has a noble character, and harmonically it moves unexpectedly to the submediant in interesting ways.
L’Armement is also available in the Bargain Bundle 12 Heroic Marches, Set 2.
