Product Description

Bach composed several violin concertos, but only three of them survive in that form-the ones designated BWV 1041-43 (BWV, in case you're curious, stands for Bachs-Werke-Verzeichnis, or catalog of Bach's works). All of the rest of them got turned into harpsichord concertos at one time or another, and the originals were lost in the process. It is usually perfectly possible (and legitimate) to restore the violin originals from the keyboard versions, and the result here is a fourth violin concerto that sounds perfectly happy in its new dress. In fact, all of the performances are highly musical and technically quite polished. --David Hurwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid Bach concertos by Tafelmusik October 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The two Concerti for Solo Violin BWV 1041-1042 were long thought to have been composed at Cothen between 1717-1723, when Bach was Kapellmeister to Prince Leopold. After all, this is the era in which the Brandenburg Concertos were created, early in Bach's career. There are some stylistic similarities but no mention of them was made in C.P.E. Bach's obituary of his father, nor in Forkel's 1802 biography of Bach, the first one published. Not even Philipp Spitta, the great 19th Century Bach scholar, could provide evidence of their composition date, though he's the source of the Cothen conjecture. Recently, Christoph Wolff, the noted Bach scholar, has argued for a rather later composition date for at least two of the concertos, suggesting they were composed around 1730 when Bach was Kantor at Leipzig. This coincides with when Bach directed the Collegium musicum at the coffee-house of Gottfried Zimmermann. Students, amateurs and the odd professional would gather inside during the Winter or outside in the garden during the warmer months and play both vocal and instrumental pieces. Bach's music was much in demand, especially his concertos. It is one of the great tragedies in music history that fully half of Bach's instrumental music, much of it dating from this period, is lost. The composition date of the violin concertos will probably remain a matter for conjecture.

These three concertos are some of Bach's most lyrical writing, not too difficult to play or to listen to, hence immensely popular. Jeanne Lamon plays the violin in the two solo concertos with great suppleness. The period instrument Tafelmusik accompany her with sensitivity and grace, making these performances some of my favorites. There is a warmth and expressiveness rarely found in any performance, regardless of provenance.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY favorite Bach CD May 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The violinist Jean Lamon is not as well known as some other violinists, but I absolutely love this recording its gorgeous her phrasing is very precise and she does'nt get hysterical or too loud in certain parts like some people I won't mention:)
Highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Performance of these Concertos I've heard April 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I heard the E major concerto contained within this album on Classical King FM 98.1 this morning while driving to work. It was way too good not to buy!

This is simply THE BEST performance of these violin concertos I have ever heard.
