The Concerto For Violin And Orchestra In E (BWV 1042) was written in three movements: Allegro – Adagio – Allegro Assai. Its history is somewhat vague, as no autograph manuscript survives. Originally scored for Violin, Strings, and Continuo, it is presented here with a Piano reduction. Editorial suggestions for bowing and fingering have been provided, together with a “clean” copy for the violinist’s own use.
J. S. Bach (1685-1750) was a German Baroque composer who is revered for the originality and skill of his contrapuntal and harmonic techniques. He spent most of his life working as an organist and choirmaster, but was also employed as a composer a many different Royal Courts.
