There is only a small number of orchestral pieces in Johann Sebastian Bach’s œuvre – which is surprising considering that the composer worked with excellent ensembles in both of his positions – as “Konzertmeister” and “Kapellmeister”– in Köthen and Weimar during the period between 1708 and 1723. This is particularly true of concertos where there is a high number of transcriptions, rearranged predominantly for harpsichord. Capella Savaria, Hungary’s oldest period instrument ensemble, presents four of these on this album.
