Concerto in E flat major, BWV597

arrangement of concerto by unknown composer

Described in the manuscript source as a ‘Concerto in D sharp’ and attributed to ‘Mons. Bach’, the Concerto in E flat, BWV597 is in effect a trio sonata without a slow movement. The material of the first movement becomes progressively more decorated while the second is an easygoing gigue.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 1999

Bizarrement présenté dans la source manuscrite comme un «Concerto en ré dièse», et attribué à «Mons.Bach», le Concerto en mi bémol majeur, BWV597 est, en réalité, une sonate en trio dépourvue de mouvement lent. Le matériau du premier mouvement se fait de plus en plus orné, tandis que le second est une gigue décontractée.

Français: Hypérion

Das in der handschriftlichen Quelle reichlich bizarr als Konzert in Dis-Dur bezeichnete und ‘Mons. Bach’ zugeschriebene Konzert in Es-Dur BWV 597 ist eigentlich eine Triosonate ohne langsamen Satz. Das Material des ersten Satzes wird immer mehr verziert, und der zweite Satz ist eine ungezwungene Gigue.
