Johann Sebastian Bach (JS Bach) (1685 - 1750) parts and score flute choir: two piccolos, five flutes, alto flute, bass flute, tympani

Traditionally performed by solo organ, Bach’s Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29 is arranged here for flute choir, with the piccolo parts closely following how an organist would perform the music. This arrangement has interesting textural and dynamic contrast, despite few dynamic markings, which Long creates through thoughtful scoring of different flute parts playing in various registers of the flute range. This arrangement was premiered in July of 2009 by the New England Conservatory Summer Metropolitan Flute Festival Orchestra in the New England Conservatory’s renowned Jordan Hall. For advanced players.

Arranged by Paige Dashner Long for 2 Piccolo, 5 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute and Timpani
