Program Notes

The beloved Bach composition is placed here in a lovely orchestration for concert band. Even though it is designed for intermediate level bands, more experienced bands will find it a real jewel to add to their repertoire. Teaching possibilities abound to reinforce phrasing and balance. An exceptional classic!

-Program Note by publisher

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote many works that became well known and loved by many. Some of those works are St. Matthew Passion, Christmas Oratorio, and Air from the Third Orchestral Suite. Arioso from BWV 156 is also one of his most loved compositions. Jacob de Haan made Arioso playable for concert band without harming the original version. Through a varied instrumentation, you will be able to hear the beauty of Bach’s music played by winds.
