Badinerie from Suite No.2 for C Euphonium & Piano (Pro-version)
A transcription for C Euphonium & Piano of J.S. Bach’s Badinerie, arranged in a tessitura to suit pro players. There is a lower version available.
The badinerie (also spelled ’battinerie’; from French ’jesting’) is best known for its designation as the final movement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor. The movement is light in mood, and is structured in a binary form; it is cast in a swift 2/4 metre beginning on the upbeat, much in the manner of a fast gavotte.
Badineries also appear in French ouvertures by Christoph Graupner and Georg Philipp Telemann, also in fast tempos and in 2/4 or alla breve metre. The presence of an upbeat is not a consistent feature; examples by Telemann include the upbeat (including one example which is essentially a gavotte), while Graupner’s do not.
While the designation ’badinerie’ is not common, its Italian counterpart ’scherzo’ appears more frequently.
