Tune of the Day: Andante from Brandenburg Concerto No. 4

by Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged for flute trio

Today we present the central movement of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 4, a slow 3/4-time Andante in E minor. The original work features a violin and two recorders playing against a string ripieno, but here we have adapted the score so that the piece could be played by three flutes.
