Bach Brandenburg Concerto No.6
Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 is a favourite in the viola repertoire. It was written for two solo violas accompanied by an orchestra of viola de gamba, cello and bass/cembalo, with no violins. This new arrangement of all three movements for viola quartet retains the original solo parts, bass line and harmonies.
- solo and accompanying parts are redistributed among the members of the viola quartet
- all four parts are of equal interest and difficulty
- the quartet score indicates which instrument plays the solo and accompaniment voices in the original Bach orchestration
- suitable for professionals and advanced-level students
