About This Item

The Concerto for Two Violins in d minor, BWV 1043 by J.S. Bach (also known as the Double Concerto) is a prime example of the late Baroque style. It exhibits Bach's utter command of counterpoint, with fugal sections and tight imitation between the two violins. For the violinists, it is simultaneously a solo work and a chamber work: both violinists take turns as the "soloist," but the scope of this music is so much bigger than the notion of "soloist" that it quickly becomes not two voices vying for prominence, but one voice with two parts. While all three movements are rich in melody, harmony, and texture, the sublime second movement can surely be considered one of the most beautiful pieces ever composed.  An indispensable work for any violinist!

This Urtext edition for two violins with piano reduction is edited by Hans Eppstein, with piano reduction by Johannes Umbreit, and markings in the violin part by Kurt Guntner.  Published by G. Henle Verlag.

Difficulty: A4
