Among Bach's best-known instrumental music are the Brandenburg Concertos. You will hear four of the six, played on period instruments. Bach dedicated them in 1721 to one Prince Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg, who was not the most considerate: he never had them performed at his court and did not even thank Bach for them. After all, Bach didn't have as much of a name in life as he does today. And so they were only rediscovered much later. Nice find! The Oboe Concerto BWV1059r also exists in versions for harpsichord and flute. So versatile and universal is this music that it always leads to a small miracle.
