  • August 20, 2020 Famous Bach Double arranged for Brandenburg 6

    Violist and composer, Brett L Allen, here introduces the Concerto for Two Violas in A Minor, an arrangement of J. S. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor, BWV 1043, (the famous “Bach Double”). Allen’s arrangement is scored for Brandenburg 6 ensemble (Solo Violas 1 & 2, Tutti...

    Violas 1 & 2, Cello, Bass and Cembalo). Or it may be performed with a Piano Reduction. It is a thoroughly edited, scholarly and performance-ready edition. An original cembalo realization and an original piano reduction are provided, both of which take into account the unique tambre of the viola. The introduction of this concerto adds significantly to Solo Viola repertoire from the Baroque period. It is therefore highly valuable in teaching Baroque style. The work makes an excellent stand-up concerto and is suitable for student recitals as well as professional orchestra performances. Duration: 14-18 mins. High note: B5. More information available at
