Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Allegro for flute ensemble

$13.00

Bach's third Brandenburg ​Concerto was ​written ​originally for string orchestra and harpsichord, or for three groups of three string instruments and a ​basso ​continuo. It was premiered ​in ​1720 at the court of Markgraf Christian Ludwig von Brandenburg in the small German town ​of ​Koethen​. This recording was taken exactly at this place during a Quintessenz ​flute ensemble live concert! ​

​This arrangement ​highlights the competition between the three groups of ​instruments, as the original nine are reduced to five flute parts – a true Quintessence! ​ The result is a firework of brilliant scales and arpeggios!​ ​ It is a challenge for every part as well as a sheer pleasure.
