Guitar,Instrumental Duet,Violin - Level 4 - Digital Download

SKU: A0.1456676

Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. Arranged by Ted Stanley. Baroque,Chamber,Classical. 6 pages. Ted Stanley #1035742. Published by Ted Stanley (A0.1456676).

Bach presented this music in at least two versions.  It opens the Cantata, BWV 156, as a Sinfonia in F played by oboe and strings.  It also appears in Ab in the Harpsichord Concerto (BWV 1056) where the string accompaniment is, interestingly, all pizzicato.  There is speculation of a lost Violin Concerto in G minor where this movement would have been set in Bb.

I have set it in A, mostly due to my guitar instincts, but violinists seem to prefer it in Bb.  I’ve provided a violin part in each key, and if performed in Bb the guitarist will need to place a capo at the 1st fret.
