2013 From Bach Disc 3
× Disc III celebrates the exuberance of Bach’s music for solo instruments and the virtuosity of the soloist. Bach’s Concerto for Violin and Oboe ingeniously pairs strings and wind instruments. Mozart’s Twelfth Piano Concerto, written soon after the death of Bach’s son, similarly treats the piano with virtuosic refinement. Mendelssohn, too, continues this hallowed tradition in his Double Concerto.
