During the years 1713/14, when he held the position of court organist in Weimar, Bach arranged a large number of concertos by contemporary composers for keyboard or organ solo. More than 20 years later, in 1735, he published his Concerto in the Italian Style: a truly original work that can confidently be described as his “summa summarum,” the climax of this genre.

The autograph is no longer extant, which means that for Henle's Urtext edition, the first print – corrected by Bach – served as the main source. The forte and piano markings found in the work signalize the alternation between imaginary tutti and solo sections.

  • August 25, 2008 Henle is the best for Bach

    That's my belief. The pages are spread out and easy to read. Good fingerings as well. You can't go wrong with Henle. The transcriptions are accurate and dependable for all composers. Henle may be more expensive than other publishers, but the editions are well made and last forever...

    . Worth the money.

  • March 16, 2007 Old Friend Looks Young in Crisp Edition

    J.S. Bach's ITALIAN CONCERTO is well known enough not to need an introduction. But this Henle edition of the sheet music is so crisp and clean, so easy to read compared to an old Urtext I used to have.
