Bach's beautiful and noble D-minor concerto is a testament to this master's abilities at the keyboard. It is actually a transcription of one of his violin concerti, and Bach has given it a grand treatment, and the expressive slow movement is reminiscent of his famous Italian Concerto. A lovely and rewarding piece. This beautiful new deluxe edition, now digitally remastered, contains a second CD featuring a slow-tempo version of the accompaniment to help you as you learn the piece.
Includes a newly engraved solo part (with orchestral reduction) printed on high-quality ivory paper, newly edited by Bach expert Romeo Smilkov, with orchestral reduction; and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in digitally remastered stereo, followed by a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; and a second CD featuring a full-speed version of the complete version followed by a -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes.
