Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 (saxophone quartet)
Arranged for saxophone quartet
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) collected his 'Brandenburg' Concertos together in 1721, as a set of six distinct works. They were presented to Christian Ludwig, the Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, with a flattering dedication from Bach, possibly in the hope of being offered a job.The third concerto is originally solely for strings: 3 violins, 3 violas, 3 cellos and continuo. This arrangement aims to preserve the essential musical elements of the original, while maintaining the character. The second movement consists merely of two chords, here given a short elaborated melody.
Includes full score and complete set of parts
