Badinerie Bites Back by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Melanie Thorne. For flute quartet (4 Flutes). Intermediate - Advanced. Score and parts. 4 pages. Duration 2 minutes, 31 seconds. Published by Sempre Music (PR.SMF22C).
Thorne's arrangement of a familiar Bach Badinerie states the theme, then takes off in variations in different styles - waltz and swing, before bringing it all back to the original. The four parts are of equal importance, and not overly demanding of the performers. For intermediate to advanced.
