(BWV 1042) 

Arranged by Brett L Allen

Release Date: July 27th, 2020

Now available as downloadable sheetmusic at

The Concerto for Viola in C Major, by J S Bach, is an arrangement of Bach's Concerto for Violin in E Major,  BWV 1042. It is arranged for an ensemble consisting of instruments commonly used to perform Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 6, i.e., Violas, Cellos, Basses and Cembalo - no Violins. 

The Piano Reduction and the Cembalo parts are the original work of the arranger and adapted to the unique character of the arrangement. 

This concerto arrangement represents a significant addition to solo viola repertoire from the Baroque period, for which there are few choices. 



ENLARGEMENT: It is strongly recommended that parts be enlarged to fit paper sizes larger than 8.5 x 11 inches (aka US Letter or A4). 9 x 12 inch paper is an excellent choice for parts (aka Concert or C4). 10 x 14 inch paper is ideal for the Conductor’s Score (aka B4). Custom size paper is also a possibility. Regardless of paper size, be sure to choose "Fit to Page" in the printer settings.


COVERS: The Full Score, Piano Reduction, Solo Parts and Cembalo are designed to receive card stock covers, front and back. Violas 1 & 2, Cello and Bass do not require covers.


BINDINGS: Margins are adjusted to receive standard coil or comb bindings. With pages in order and facing up, the left side receives the binding.
