Information about Bach J S : Orchestral Suite No.2 in B minor for Flute
J S Bach Orchestral Suite (Overture) No.2 in B minor (BWV 1067) Flute & Piano
The B minor Suite has a special place among the four extant orchestral suites by J S Bach (BWV 1066-1069), for two reasons: it is the only suite that calls for one wind instrument, and the only one with extensive solo passages for one instrument. Since, moreover, it is essentially Bachs only composition for solo flute with orchestra, it enjoys great favour among flutists.
Our arrangement for flute and obbligato harpsichord (piano) has been prepared similar to one Bach himself might have written Bach presumably changing the orchestral part even more. The aim here has been to do nothing that Bach himself would not have done, yet to refrain from doing everything of which he was capable.
