Bach - Air on G String - Brass Quartet

| /

Air on G String - J.S. Bach - arranged for Brass Quartet by Mick Hesse.

A nice arrangement by Mick - He decided to write the trombone part in alto clef, which invites the part to be played by an alto trombone. The trumpet parts stays in a low range, so it´s a "releive" number for them.
