Description

A sensational find within a revision: BWV 1067 in the in A Minor original version for violin

Bach's Overture BWV 1067 has become world-famous particularly through its closing Badinerie, a dashing finale that lets every flutist dazzle. All the more incredible was Werner Breig's new finding during his source study: the B Minor score is based in all probability on a lost A Minor work for four-part string ensemble and continuo. The reconstruction of the early A Minor version, published here for the first time, has "its own qualities and is artistically compelling through its economy and the perfect agreement between musical invention and means" (Werner Breig). Thus every proficient violinist can now shine with the Badinerie (one tone lower!).
