Concerto in C major, BWV 1061 (fragment) Allegro Adagio ovvero Largo Fuga Scoring: harpsichord I/II solo, violin I/II, viola, continuo (cello, violone) Length: c. 19 minutes Of all Bach's harpsichord concertos, this is probably the only one that originated as a harpsichord work, though not in an orchestral guise. The work originated as a concerto for two harpsichords unaccompanied (BWV 1061a, in the manner of the Italian Concerto, BWV 971), and the addition of the orchestral parts may not have been by Bach himself. The string orchestra does not fulfil an independent role, and only appears to augment cadences; it is silent in the middle movement. The harpsichords have much dialogue between themselves and play in an antiphonal manner throughout. (Wikipedia)
