Theme: "Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F Major, Third Movement (Allegro assai )"

    [This concerto grosso is one in a set of six which were 
     composed by Bach while he held the post of choir master
     and organist in the city of Köthen, Germany; They are called
     "Brandenburg" Concertos because they were commissioned by
     the Margrave of Brandenburg (a German state.) They were
     to be played by an ensemble of diverse instruments; The
     final third movement in the Allegro tempo begins with
     the familiar rococo melody played by in a high register by
     a so-called "Bach" trumpet (aka: "Baroque trumpet".)]
