J.S. Bach
Masterclass/Play-Along CD
for soprano saxophone solo & large ensemble
by Dave Camwell

This Saxophone Journal masterclass features the third movement of Bach’s Concerto in F, BWV 1057. However, Bach often reused music from his previous compositions and reworked them into new versions for different ensembles. BWV 1057 actually originates from the fourth Brandenberg Concerto, BWV 1049, which predominantly features the first violin. Bach’s BWV 1052-1058 consist entirely of concerti for harpsichord and ensemble, with BWV 1057 being perhaps the most beloved of this set due to its soaring melodies and the inventive and exciting treatment of the thematic material throughout the final movement.
