La Serenissima

Telemann Concerto for 4 violins in G, TWV 40:201 Vivaldi Concerto for 3 violins in F, RV551 Telemann Sonata for 4 violins in C, TWV 40:203 Bach Concerto à 6 in D minor (Concerto for two violins), BWV1043 Leonardo Leo Concerto for 4 violins & continuo Telemann Concerto for 4 violins in D, WV 40:202 Vivaldi Concerto for 4 violins, viola & continuo in B flat, RV553 Bach's famous double violin concerto has been popular with audiences for over a century. However, Bach scholarship now accepts that much of his orchestral output was intended to be played one-to-a-part, thus making sense of the obbligato contributions made by those other than the 'soloists'. The piece is put into context alongside contemporary concertos by Vivaldi, whose concerto form influenced Bach's and a fabulous concerto for four violins by Leo.
