Chosen from BWV 51, 170, 55, 82
Performed by the 2nd Annual Bach Competition for Young Artists Winner & Runner-up*
J.S. Bach composed an enormous quantity of brilliant instrumental music during his lifetime. In the Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C Minor, 1060 he masterfully blends two solo instruments with the orchestra creating an enchanting work in which the two instruments dovetail and engage in conversation with each other and the orchestra throughout. C.P.E. Bach was J.S. Bach’s second son and an influential composer in his own right. He was a prolific writer of concertos, and his Flute Concerto in D Minor, Wq 22 is a great example of these virtuosic and dramatic works.
In addition to the two instrumental works, the winner and runner-up from the 2nd Annual Bach Competition for Young Artists will be the featured soloists performing one of Bach’s exquisite Solo Cantatas.
