Concerts for harpsichords and string instruments
Johann Sebastian Bach
The concerts for harpsichord and string instruments stand as the most gracious and suggestive instrumental compositions of the composer. Bach is tireless and relentless in his search for embellishments that make his dialogue with the instruments more expressive. He never ceases to amaze us with surprises like the adagio from the concert for harpsichord, flute and strings, specially the one in the old and beautiful version of Rampal, as it evokes a lunar landscape from a dream-like and secret fable, or the marvellous adagio for two harpsichords and strings in C minor, of weightless delicacy.
