Detailed Description

J.S. BACH: Concerto for 2 Pianos C minor, BWV1060; SCHUMANN: Andante & Variations for 2 Pianos, Violoncelli & Horn composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) and Robert Schumann. For piano. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3055).

ISBN 1596150491.

Based on a now-lost concerto for oboe and violin, this beautiful Baroque work relies heavily on the two pianos for effect, with a lovely but subdued string accompaniment. Bach dispenses with the strings altogether in the lovely central movement, then ends with an exhilarating fugue. In short, it is a gem! The concerto's companion-piece on this album, Robert Schumann's Andante and Variations, is a striking and unusual piece written in chamber music style for a small ensemble. It illustrates Schumann's daring experiments with the piano's possibilities. A totally unique and beautiful experience, filled with beautiful instrumental textures and wonderful writing for the two pianos.

Includes a high-quality printed solo part (with orchestral reduction) and a compact disc containing a complete version of each composition with soloist (1st piano), in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
