Orchester-Sinfonie in F major, H665 Wq183/3


The third of the ‘Orchestra-Symphonies’ features yet another gripping opening, with Bach again seeming to capture music from the air. A second theme is announced by the winds with accompanimental wisps from the strings, but the course of the movement as a whole is halting and restless in its colouring and constant changes of direction, so that it really is hard to guess what will come next. A slow-moving bridge passage leads to the middle movement, an unusual one in binary form in which each half is heard first as a duet for viola and cello, and then picked up by the full strings and woodwind. After this the finale is a witty juxtaposition of galant send-off and faintly rustic gigue.
