    Default Bach's Air for Quartet of Wagnertuben and Tuba or Horns

    Hello horn and tuba players!

    Here's, from J-S Bach's suite for orchestra No 3, the Air, for three wagnertuben and one tuba, copyleft transposed. French horns can replace any of them.

    Because the first voice is high for a French horn, here's a variant with a B-flat bugle or cornet. The two French horns remain, the tuba too, and their replacement options.

    Bach's Air for Wagnertuben and Tuba Quartet

    here's again, from J-S Bach's suite for orchestra No 3, the Air, for three wagnertuben and one tuba, in E-flat major copyleft transposed. French horns can replace any wagnertuba.

    In G major, the fourth voice was seriously low for a French horn. This option is abandoned here. The tuba can play lower, here by a major third, which eases the tenor wagnertuben voices.
