Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This Dover edition makes available in miniature format Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos, composed while he served as Kapellmeister to Prince Leopold of Cöthen from 1717 to 1723.
In these masterpieces—dedicated in 1721 to the Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg—Bach abandoned the standard type of concerto grosso in favor of a variety of solo combinations, resulting in music of intense, appealing originality, complex textures and development, and unprecedented instrumentation. Among the most frequently performed and recorded in the entire repertoire, the concertos are reprinted here from the definitive Bach-Gesellschaft edition. They include No. 1 in F Major, No. 2 in F Major, No. 3 in G Major, No. 4 in G Major, No. 5 in D Major, and No. 6 in B-flat Major.
These six works are published in full score with bar-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent miniature edition of Bach's Brandenburg Concerti. It has an interesting and informative preface, including a small list of variants from the MS. Moreover, the price is right, and while the print is extremely small, the engraving is very clear, making the edition easily readable. This is a very good deal.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is from an interesting collection of classical music, but it is too small to try an play the music from. My nephew explained to me after I bought it for him as a gift that the book is only intended for following along when listening to the music being played by others. Works for me! /// WEL
