Brahms - Hungarian Dance # 8

Johannes Brahms composed Hungarian Dance #8 about 1869. There are a series of 21 dances published over a period of 25 years. No. 8 comes from the second book.

The key of A minor sits nicely on the recorder but to accomplish this transcription/arrangement it was necessary to utilize the entire range of notes available which creates a nice challenge. The SnSSATBBGbCb instrumentation was necessary but great fun to 'puzzle' the 'how is this going to work' thing  in the middle sections.

This would certainly be for an advanced adventurous recorder orchestra.. Enjoy
