Bach, J. S.: Three Sonatas for Recorder & Harpsichord


Three sonatas for Recorder & Harpsichord, after sonatas BWV 1027-1029, originally for Viola da Gamba & Harpsichord.

Recorder & Harpsichord.

Bach, Johann Sebastian.

The three sonatas offered here are recorder arrangements of the three sonatas Bach wrote for harpsichord obligato & viola da gamba. The pieces were transposed to keys suitable for the recorder. The two melodic lines were treated as interchangeable, that is, equally suitable for each of the melodic lines in the arrangement.

Here are short samples of the four movements, performed by Uri A. Dror & Uri Karshon, recorded in a live concert in Tel Aviv (the full recording can be found in our Gallery/Audio page):

1. Adagio:

2. Allegro:

3. Andante:

4. Allegro:
