Concerto in A Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Arranged by Brian Slawson. Mallet Sextet. For glockenspiel, xylophone, vibraphone, 2 small marimbas (4 octaves), 4.3 octave (low A) marimba. NOTE: Two marimba players can also share a 4.3 octave (low A) marimba if instruments are limited (6 players). "Allegro" from Concerto for 4 Harpsichords & Strings (BWV 1065) mallet sextet from "Bach on Wood". Medium-Advanced. Score and parts on CD-ROM. 10 pages. Duration 2'30". Published by Tapspace Publications (TA.TSPCE-31).
Harpsichord concertos were written throughout the Baroque era, particularly by J.S. Bach. This "Allegro" from Bach's Concerto for 4 Harpsichords & Strings (BWV 1065), however, is based on Vivaldi's, Concerto for 4 Violins in B minor, RV 580. For one composer to "borrow" material from another during Bach's time was considered a flattering gesture. Mallet instruments have much in common with the attack and decay properties of harpsichords, making arrangements such as this a natural choice. Slawson's orchestrations bring this piece further to life and it will make an excellent addition to the repertoire of any percussion ensemble wishing to highlight a Baroque selection for only mallet instruments. This arrangement for Concerto in A Minor has been heard worldwide on the popular CD, Bach on Wood which helped garner Brian Slawson a Grammy nomination of "Best New Classical Artist." This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
