Fasch - Concerto for 3 Wind Bands for 25 winds and timpani (11'00)

SKU: [8405]

Johann Friedrich Fasch’s CONCERTO FOR 3 WIND BANDS (Concerto für drei chöre, FWV L:D 13) is possibly the largest known instrumentation for winds and percussion in the baroque era. It requires a much larger ensemble than Handel’s Musick for the Royal Fireworks. The four movements are antiphonal (but not in echoes) and have a surprisingly lacy texture.
