Sinfonia (BWV 156-1)


Deborah Dahl Shanks’ arrangement of Bach’s Sinfonia 156, number 1 is for lever or pedal harp and flute. This Arioso from Cantata 156 for the third Sunday after Epiphany (also known as I am standing with one foot in the grave) was first performed on January 23, 1729. The Cantata is well known for its opening Sinfonia melody for orchestra and solo oboe. This arrangement pairs the harp with the lightness of the flute.
