This arrangement of movements from Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.1, can be played by fairly small forces (violins with cello and/or piano if necessary), but of course wind instruments will provide the contrast which the composer intended with the Trios. When a sufficient variety of instruments is available the several repetitions of the Menuet may well be varied to some extent by omitting the flute or other woodwind parts.
In Trio II the original upper parts were for 2 horns as cued in the horn parts; if reliable trumpets are present they may be preferred to clarinets in this section.
Duration: 8 minutes
