Bach (Triple Concerto in A Minor) and Vivaldi (Concerto in D Minor) (Flute and Piano)
Bach's intricate 'triple' concerto for keyboard, violin and flute is a challenge, containing much brilliant passagework. The less formidable slow movement was taken from the organ sonata No. 3. It is a companion to the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, the first movement of which is included on this album. An extremely rewarding and enjoyable piece for study. Vivaldi's D-minor concerto was originally written for oboe but is equally at home on the flute. Both are Baroque music at its best.
Includes a high-quality printed music score and a compact disc containing a complete performance of the concerto in split-channel stereo, with the soloist on the right channel; and a second performance in full stereo minus the soloist.
Performed by Jeffery Zook, flute
