    Bach "Trio Sonata 5" Organ Transcription

    The following is a transcription that of the J.S. Bach "Trio Sonata 5", a three movement work for organ that I set for string trio. Gary Garritan had posted the first movement several weeks ago. Here are the complete three movements produced using Finale and the GPO.

    The instruments selected from the GPO library are;

    Vln 1 - Gagliano Plr 1, Vla - Solo Viola KS, Cello - Solo Cello KS

    Enjoy!

    And still another!

    You must be keeping yourself quite busy with these, Gary -- quite a good deal of work involved with each of these!

    Once again, fine rendering on this.

    Good job!

    Best,

    Thanks for posting these works to complete the Sonata. An excellent realization of these sublime movements.

    Your use of notation and GPO is amazing. And you've become so prolific that I can hardly keep up with you.

    Thanks for your posts David and Gary.

    The original organ works are so wonderful and fiendishly difficult in and of themselves. When I heard then it became obvious to me, at least, that they would work perfectly in a small string ensemble form. Playing them into the notation score was most of the work. Scoring was not terribly difficult, mainly keeping in mind the instrument's good ranges and some thought to trading off to make it a little more interesting. Of course, not having a high quality string ensemble at my disposal, being able to play the score through the GPO was the best part. After "auditioning" the instruments, the final selection made the output work as you now hear it.

    Thanks Gary G. for giving me the tool I needed to put it all together!!

    P.S. I think I hear Trio Sonata #1 playing sometime in the future.
