Brandenburg Concerto No 3 in G major, BWV1048
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Dedicated to Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg, these six concertos appeared in 1721 as a collection of ‘Concerts for several instruments’. Two groups of contrasting size characterized the more usual concerto grosso, but in the Brandenburg concerti this concept was abandoned in favour of different combinations of instruments used in a generally soloistic fashion. Some use trumpet, oboe and flute, but the Third Concerto in G major is scored for just the brightness of strings and continuo. Friedman transcribes only the first movement, and it works very well—it is such a gloriously happy work that it must also have given him great pleasure to play.
