Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F Major for String Orchestra (Grade 4)
1st Movement, Arranged for String Orchestra
By Johann Sebastian Bach / arr. Steven H. Brook
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!
These traditional carols are arranged in fresh popular styles, with rhythm section or piano accompaniment. You'll find quiet introspective treatments, energetic pop, swing tunes and Cuban grooves. All of these pieces can be accompanied by piano, rhythm section, or recorded rhythm tracks. The printed book includes the complete score. A CD-ROM is included with the book and has printable PDF files with all instrumental parts and optional parts for Violin 3 (for Viola) and Arco Bass, rhythm/piano parts for "live" accompaniment, stereo accompaniment tracks, and stereo demonstration tracks. Moderate difficulty.
