String trio arrangement

Allemande BWV 836 (arr. by MaLj for string trio) (1720) by Joh. Seb. Bach & Wilh. Fr. Bach

This “Allemande” in G minor (BWV 836) is from the music album Johann Sebastian Bach prepared for his eldest son. The “Klavierb├╝chlein f├╝r Wilhelm Friedemann Bach” was started around 1720, when the boy was ten years old. It is assumed that father and son collaborated in the composing of this keyboard (harpsichord, clavichord, etc) piece.

I have arranged this for string trio: Violin I, Violin II or Viola, and Violoncello. There are separate parts to print from the page, too, and the middle part is available both in notation for Violin II and for Viola.

The time signature (my edition) is 8/8 here, instead of the more common C or 4/4, but the tempo is counted in half notes from the start.
