Badinerie Bites Back

By Johann Sebastian Bach

Flute Quartet 4 Flutes - Intermediate - Advanced
Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Melanie Thorne. Flute quartet. Score and part(s). 4 pages. Duration 2 minutes, 31 seconds. Sempre Music #SM-F22C. Published by Sempre Music (PR.SMF22C).

Item Number: PR.SMF22C

Key: B minor.

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.

    This is lots of fun for medium level flute players. It presents the Bach classic in a variety of moods and styles. Students love it!

    This piece looks like it will be fun for flute choir this summer, but, we've not started on it yet. First part of the piece is the classic Badinerie which then morphs to a waltz and jazz versions.
