Johann Sebastian Bach's spirited F-minor concerto is wonderfully compact, of a manageable length for the student player, and displays all the wonderful qualities associated with the granddaddy of the keyboard. Great fun to learn and play! Its companion on this disc is a concerto long attributed to Johann Christian Bach, but now proven to belong to one of Bach's lesser-known sons, Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach, who was a skillful composer, as this marvelous gem will testify. It is perfect for the beginning student, a wonderful preparation for the Mozart concerti. Includes a second compact disc with a special slow-tempo version of the accompaniments to help you get up to speed. Includes a newly engraved, authoritative printed music score with orchestral reduction, printed on high-quality ivory paper; and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in digitally remastered stereo; then a second digitally remastered stereo version of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist; and a second compact disc containing the complete version of the concerto, followed by a -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniments for practice purposes.
Performed by David Syme, piano. Accompaniment: Stuttgart Festival Orchestra. Conductor: Emil Kahn.
