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

by Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged for flute trio

This is the central movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F major, a plaintive and beautifully relaxed 3/4-time Andante in D minor. In the original scoring, this movement is played by three soloists (a recorder, an oboe and a violin) against a simple continuo accompaniment.

Many thanks to Joyce Kai for contributing this arrangement for three flutes!
