Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F Major
1st Movement, arranged for string orchestra
By Johann Sebastian Bach / arr. Steven H. Brook
Belwin Concert String Orchestra
Gone are the winds—Bach's great music remains. But, it is not merely giving the horn parts to the violas. This is a reworking that maintains the integrity of the music adapted for new instrumentation. Scored with four violin parts and two viola parts, this piece can be performed effectively using single or multiple players on each part. The antiphonal writing highlights the contrapuntal genius of this masterpiece. Perfect for festival, to feature students, or as an opener or closer! This title is available in SmartMusic.
