Violin Concertos in A minor & E major / Concerto for Two Violins – J S Bach , tape - TC-ASD 1435204

£3.99

Product description

(featuring the soloists, Anne-Sophie Mutter & Salvatore Accardo, backed by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Accardo, plus harpsichordist L Pearson)

The collection on the cassette, starts with Johann Sebastian Bach’s Violin Concerto in E major. The work does have some similarities with the Brandenburg Concertos, if only in the major basic tonality (all of these pieces, plus the two other concertos featured on the cassette, were composed between late 1717 and Spring 1723, when Bach and his family lived in Cothen).
Side One :-
Violin Concerto in E major BWV 1042, by J S Bach :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Adagio 3) Allegro assai.

Bach’s Concerto in D minor for Two Violins, includes one of the composer’s most sublime creations, namely the duet of overlapping and imitative phrases, between the final stages of the first movement, and the initial part of the second movement.

In common with other Violin Concertos that he composed, Bach also converted this work, for the playing by flautists, harpsichordists and other stringed instruments.
SideTwo :-
Concerto in D minor for two Violins BWV 1043 :-
1) I Vivace 2) II Largo ma non troppo 3) III Allegro.

To properly appreciate the Violin Concerto in A minor, it is necessary to consider its movements, in detail.

The first movement starts with an initial tutti exposition, followed by the soloist entering with a new and complementary idea ... thereafter, short statements from soloist, and string backing, alternate in quick succession, turning the music into a dialogue between contrasting forces.

The slow second movement, is also a dialogue, this time between the opening four-bar bass ostinato, and the soloist’s cantilena. Rarely, is Bach’s melodic resilience better demonstrated ...

In the finale, a gigue, features one of the most unusual sounds to come out of a Bach composition, namely the result of “Bariolage” (“Odd Mixture of Colours”), which produces a very odd “Croaking” effect, by which the same note is played alternately on stopped and then open strings.
Side Two (continued) :-
Violin Concerto in A minor BWV 1041 :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Andante 3) III Allegro assai.
