Concerto movement in D major, BWV1045

Allegro; for violin, three trumpets, timpani, two oboes, bassoon, strings and continuo

BWV1045 appears to be a completed concerto-style opening movement to a late-ish lost cantata (from about 1730); it seems to be in a newer style of composition than the preserved Cöthen works for violin and orchestra, but may have been drawn from a previously existing solo violin concerto with lighter scoring.

from notes by Stephen Daw © 1996

BWV1045 semble être un mouvement entier d’ouverture, dans un style de concerto, pour une cantate ultérieure qui n’a pas survécu (datant d’environ 1730); il semble être dans un style de composition plus nouveau que les œuvres conservées de Köthen pour violon et orchestre, mais il peut être issu d’un concerto pour violon seul déjà composé dont l’orchestration était plus légère.

Bei BWV1045 scheint es sich um den vollständigen einleitenden Konzertsatz einer spät (ca.1730) entstandenen, seither verloren gegangenen Kantate zu handeln; man hat den Eindruck, daß es einem neueren Kompositionsstil angehört als die erhaltenen Köthener Werke für Violine und Orchester, doch könnte dieses Werk ebenso gut ein Auszug aus einem älteren Solokonzert für Violine sein.
