Concerto for Two Harpsichords in C, BWV 1061By Johann Sebastian Bach / arr. Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe (Bach Society Edition) Item: 36-A123482
Written by J.S. Bach (1685-1750) sometime in 1733-1734, the Concerto for Two Harpsichords in C, BWV 1061 appears to have been originally written for only the two solo harpsichords. The string parts were added later, and perhaps not by Bach himself. That the strings play no independent role but merely double the keyboards when they are playing permits this work to easily be performed in its original 2-player format or with the string accompaniment if an occasionally fuller sound with augmented cadences is preferred. Instrumentation: Str (2-2-2-1-1 in set): Soli Harpsichords (2) or Soli Harpsichords (2) only.
