Reconstructed concertos

Each reconstructed concerto is created after the harpsichord concerto for the presumed original instrument. Such reconstructions are commonly referred to as, for example, BWV 1052R (where the R stands for 'reconstructed').

  • BWV 1052r — Violin Concerto in D minor (reconstructed from BWV 1052)
  • BWV 1053r — Oboe d'amore Concerto in D major / Oboe Concerto in F major (reconstructed from BWV 1053)
  • BWV 1055r — Oboe d'amore Concerto in A major (reconstructed from BWV 1055)
  • BWV 1056r — Violin Concerto in G minor / Oboe Concerto in G minor (reconstructed from BWV 1056)
  • BWV 1059r — Oboe Concerto in D minor (reconstructed from BWV 1059 and associated cantatas - the most spurious reconstruction, simply because there is no more than a 10-bar fragment of this piece surviving)
  • BWV 1060r — Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C minor/D minor (reconstructed from BWV 1060)
  • BWV 1064r — Concerto for Three Violins in D major (reconstructed from BWV 1064)

Johann Sebastian Bach: a detailed informative biography (8566 words)
Johann Sebastian Bach was born on March 21st l685, the son of Johann Ambrosius, court trumpeter for the Duke of Eisenach and director of the musicians of the town of Eisenach in Thuringia.
Johann Sebastian and one of his brothers, Johann Jakob, were taken into the home of their eldest brother, Johann Christoph (born l671) who had recently married and settled down at Ohrdruf, a small town thirty miles south-east of Eisenach.
Johann Sebastian soon lost his soprano voice, but was able to make himself useful as a violinist in the orchestra, and as an accompanist at the harpsichord during choir rehearsals.
Johann Sebastian Bach: Biography and Much More from Answers.com (6904 words)
Johann Sebastian Bach (pronounced [ˈjoːhan zəˈbastjan ˈbax]) (21 March 1685 O.S. 28 July 1750 N.S.) was a prolific German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra and solo instruments drew together the strands of the baroque genre and brought it to its ultimate maturity.
Bach's harmony is marked by a tendency to employ brief tonicisations—subtle references to another key, particularly of the supertonic, that last for only a a few beats at the longest—to add colour to his textures.
Bach was best known during his lifetime as an organist, organ consultant, and composer of organ works both in the traditional German free genres such as preludes, fantasias, and toccatas, and stricter forms such as chorale preludes and fugues.
