“Who was ever really happy with one scoop of ice cream rather than two? Bach’s Double Concerto is dessert doubled. . .The violins’ interplay is playfully fiery in the work’s outer movements. But here, in the central Largo, the mood is shared, serene, blossoming longing.” — New York Times
Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D minor (BWV 1043) is one of the maestro’s most beloved pieces. The structural beauty and cheery, expressive, relentless, and moving aspects of the concerto enchant audiences and consume the players. Our festive program concludes with Johann Sebastian Bach’s daring Violin Concerto No. 2 in E major and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s Oboe Concerto in B flat major.
