Fred Kern has selected the Brandenburg themes that work well for solo piano. The arrangements reveal a wealth of inventive counterpoint, energetic rhythms and varied instrumental color. The transcriptions are also playable on harpsichord, electronic keyboard or organ, with difficulty level between the Notebook for Anna Magdalena and the Bach's Two-Part Inventions.

    I ordered this to play at a wedding (5 weeks prior). Unfortunately it didn't arrive in time.However, it was good that I had to go to plan B (making my own arrangement), because when it did arrive, I found that it was much too simple for a wedding...

    ceremony. It's mostly in two voices and doesn't give you the joyous, rhythmic feel of Bach's original. It would be fine for an intermediate student who wanted to play some Bach apart from the Anna Magdalena collection.
