Bach: Italian Concerto & French Overture

Here is the second volume of Lucy Carolan's recordings of Bach's keyboard music

The Italian Concerto is unique: a wholly original solo keyboard work written as if "transcribed" from a string original to which Bach adds strikingly new ideas expressly suited for harpsichord.

The contrasting French Overture contains lighter dances from the court of Louis XIV, all of which are dance forms which had been familiar to Bach from his childhood.
