Has anyone ever tried playing Mov.1 of the 2nd Concerto on a soprillo or 'nino? Theoretically, if they have the same range as the piccolo trumpet, it should work, no?
My saxophone teacher, Allen Rippe, performed Brandenburg No. 2 on sopranino in 1974 with the Hartford Chamber Orchestra (on Larry Teal's sopranino). The conductor of that ensemble preferred this arrangement because of problems balancing the concertino parts when a piccolo trumpet was used.

I have a .pdf of Rippe's transcription that he used for the performance. PM me if it would be helpful to you.
