Tune of the Day: Badinerie by J.S. Bach

from Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, transcribed for flute quartet

In the 20th century this last movement from Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 2 has become one of the most famous show-pieces for solo flutists, due to its quick pace and difficulty.

We already had a solo version of this piece, but due to popular demand we have decided to also prepare this arrangement for 4 flutes plus (optional) bass.
