“A valuable book!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

It's such a great idea to introduce four of the great arias from the Bach Passions by arranging them in this combination. Only one, 'Ich folge' from the St John, is originally for flute and here the long melodic line has been split between the two players, making it easier to see the overall structure. The other three offer us the chance to get to know this fabulous music from the inside. Sensitive arrangements mean that the music looks accessible on the page and the editing has been kept simple. Breathing problems have also been largely eliminated, leaving that challenge for the real thing at a later date! This book is a real treat and you will return to it every Easter time for years!

From the Publisher

Bach's St. Matthew and St. John Passions contain some of the most beautiful music ever written, expressing profound emotion from exaltation to deepest sorrow.  This volume brings four of these intensely moving arias - the joyous 'Ich will dir mein Herze schenken' and 'Ich folge dir gleichfalls' , and the deeply poignant 'Erbarme dich' and 'Es ist vollbracht' - into the ensemble repertoire.  These musically sensitive arrangements of the vocal parts, instrumental obbligati, and orchestral scores give flautists a rare oppertunity to experience and perform this extraordinary music more intimately.  Suitable for intermediate and advanced players, the Four Arias from the Passions make ideal concert pieces.
