Keyboard Concerto No 5 in F minor, BWV1056
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Concerto No 5 in F minor, BWV1056 is the shortest of the keyboard concertos but one of the most popular, thanks to its beautiful Adagio. Bach also used this movement as the introductory Sinfonia to the Cantata BWV156, Ich steh’ mit einem Fuß im Grabe (‘I stand with one foot in the grave’), where the melody is given to the oboe. Presented over a pizzicato accompaniment, it is short, simple, and serenely beautiful and moving. If ever one needs evidence to show how Bach could make the keyboard sing, this is it. The outer movements are concise and very energetic, and most likely had another life as a violin concerto.
