Bach’s Flute/Violin Sonata II in Eb for all woodwinds is special in many ways. Firstly, it fills the need for finding and performing the very best in music. In addition, it is also importantly unique because it may be performed by a variety of musicians. For example, the arrangement in for Flute may be performed with ANY of the woodwind instruments above. You may mix and match any woodwind instrument with any other woodwind instrument as a duet, quartet, or larger group depending on what woodwind instruments are available. What’s more, each of the woodwind instruments may be combined with any other of the woodwind instruments to be played either as a duet or in any combination desired. To be sure, this work may be performed anywhere, anytime with any group of woodwind musicians. Quality and readiness of performance with the various musicians on hand add to the many attributes this music already has enhancing its inherent genuine global appeal.This is critical because teachers, students and musicians worldwide are constantly seeking music of the highest quality that can be skillfully presented to the public while having, at the same time, built-in qualities both pleasing to the listener and the performer alike. Bach’s melodies have stood the test of time and are, without question, internationally popular. That also makes these arrangements truly worthy of attention.I personally have had great success with this work in many major concerts including its premier performance using a Flute Choir at a Civic Center Concert held in Syracuse, NY before several thousand people who triumphed the young musicians with a standing ovation. At the time, I had set this music to a Jazz arrangement which is available as THE BACH JAZZ SONATA by Joe Procopio.The melody by J.S. Bach used in this work is taken from the Bach-Gesellschaft Ausgabe Band 9 and 1 Kammermusik BWV 1031- known as the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach which was published in 46 volumes from 1851-1899. A single volume was issued in 1926. The last surviving editor of the series died in 1928, and these volumes are now public domain worldwide. They are also held in acclaim because there are no articulation or expression marks in the Gesellshaft. Therefore, the articulation and expression marks written in these arrangements by the arranger are suggestions only. Musicians may perform the works in any manner best suited to the betterment of their own performance.
