Program Notes

Johann Sebastian Bach needs no further explanation as a composer. He composed many beautiful pieces and his pieces were arranged numerous times for various instrumentations. This short piece, Sinfonia, has been arranged by "Sam Daniels" (an anonymous pseudonym) for concert band and fanfare bands.
