Bach Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach 1725 for String Orchestra

Bach Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach 1725 for String Orchestra

The title Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach refers to either of two manuscript notebooks that the German Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach presented to his second wife, Anna Magdalena. Keyboard music (minuets, rondeaux, polonaises, chorales, sonatas, preludes, musettes, marches, gavottes) makes up most of both notebooks, and a few pieces for voice (songs, and arias) are included.

The two notebooks are known by their title page dates of 1722 and 1725. The title "Anna Magdalena notebook" is commonly used to refer to the latter. The primary difference between the two collections is that the 1722 notebook contains works only by Johann Sebastian Bach (including most of the French Suites), while the 1725 notebook is a compilation of music by both Bach and other composers of the era. It provides a nearly unparalleled glimpse into the domestic music of the 18th century and the musical tastes of the Bach family.

Here you will find an arrangement of four pieces for String Orchestra - March in D, Minuet in G, Chorale and Musette.

Fugue in G minor, BWV 578, popularly known as the "Little Fugue", is a piece of organ music written by Johann Sebastian Bach during his years at Arnstadt (1703–1707).

Early editors of Bach's work attached this title to distinguish it from the later Great Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542.

Mozart Country Dance K.535 for string orchestra

Mozart Country Dance K.535 for string orchestra

Here is an arrangement based around Mozart's Country Dance K.535. Great fun for a young string orchestra.  I have to say, I think that this is a very cheeky piece.

Dvorak Larghetto

Dvorak wrote his Sonatina in G major, Opus 100 in November 1893, completing it on 3rd December. It was intended for his own children, Ottilie and Antonin, which is why it is very playable. The G minor second movement, known to many as Indian Lament uses a theme that had come to the composer as he visited the Minnehaha Falls.

Buxtehude Ciacona in E Minor

Buxtehude composed three ostinato works: the ciaconas in C minor (BuxWV 159) and E minor (BuxWV 160) and the passacaglia in D minor (BuxWV 161). Johann Sebastian Bach's older brother Johann Christoph preserved all three of these works in a single manuscript, known as the "Andreas Bach Buch," Originating in in Spain at the beginning of the seventeenth century, both the ciacons and passacaglia’s soon appeared in a wide variety of Italian instrumental and vocal music. I've not bowed this edition as I felt that most people would do something different! I always find a clear score better to mark…

Offenbach Galop

Offenbach Galop

The famous Galop from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld always goes down well in a concert. This version simplifies the end of the overture while still managing to keep the sparkle of the original. I've left the percussion parts in but it could be performed without them.
