Item Number: S0.60125

This new work is constructed from the first movement of J.S. Bach's "Concerto for two harpsichords in c minor, BWV 1062" for solo string quartet and string orchestra. Bach himself transcribed his own concerto from the more well known "Concerto for two violins in d minor, BWV 1043". It was my goal to create a new work that treated the members of the solo string quartet as equally as the two violins are treated in BWV 1043 but not be a direct duplicate. The harpsichord lines are closely preserved in this transcription and transfer strongly to the members of the string quartet giving many solo opportunities to the viola and cello.
