The Mass in G minor, performed by the Netherlands Bach Society for All of Bach, derives its opening from cantata 102, while the other two choruses and three arias are taken from cantatas 187 and 72. Bach probably wrote this and three other ‘Lutheran’ masses to create a safe haven for some of his favourite pieces. The neutral character of a Latin Mass means it can be used on far more occasions than the one specific moment in the ecclesiastical year assigned to the cantatas written in German.

Recorded for the project All of Bach on October 11th 2014 at the Grote Kerk, Naarden.

I like this piece.  Going to start working it up.

There was great excitement in Weimar, when Prince Johann Ernst returned in 1713 from the Netherlands, where he spent a great deal of money getting lots of music copied and bound, including a collection of music by Benedetto Marcello. Bach arranged the string concerto no. 2 from this collection for keyboard, which he probably created to liven up the dinners at the Saxe-Weimar home. This Concerto in C minor BWV 981 is here performed by Olga Pashchenko for All of Bach.
But actually, it was no easy task to arrange the original. Marcello’s original concerto is much simpler than Bach’s arrangement – on paper at least. Melodies are ornamented, and sustained chords are filled out, so that a static keyboard can imitate the inherent movement of a stringed instrument.

Did you want a stressful job? Try ‘Page Turner’ at a classical concert.
