Johann Sebastian Bach’s six Brandenburg concerti are heralded as some of the greatest works of the Baroque era, and are often performed today.
Bach compiled these previously composed six works during his tenure as Kapellmeister (music director) in Cöthen, in honor of the Margrave of
Brandenburg, Christian Ludwig.
The Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 may have been one of the last to be written, and it certainly seems like a special-occasion piece.
Concerto for Oboe and Violin in D minor: Though the manuscript to this concerto was lost, a reconstruction of it was made possible because, in 1736, Bach had arranged it as the Concerto for two harpsichords and orchestra in C minor (BWV 1060), a work whose score survived and served as a model for the original.
Concerto in D major “Il Gardellino”: The work, with its gentle themes for the flute soloist and bucolic harmonies for the string ripieno, lives up to its name. The opening Allegro is as light and evanescent as the opening of "Spring" from the Four Seasons.
