Johann Sebastian Bach (JS Bach) (1685 - 1750 parts and score flute choir: five flutes, alto flute, bass flute, (bassoon optional but recommended))

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750); Arranged by Frederick Lange

In preparing this arrangement every effort was made to preserve Bach's original flute parts (Flutes 2 and 3). The very florid Solo Violin of the original has been divided among Flutes 1, 4, and 5. While this arrangement is playable by 7 flutes, the bassoon part provides a more accurate portrayal of the original basso part and, more importantly, provides the ensemble with greater definition of the rhythmic pulse and thus helps the group stay together in performance.
