For many years cellists have enjoyed the Vivaldi Double Cello Concerto in G Minor, and the Handel Sonata in G minor featuring 2 cellos is also fairly well known (it was a favourite of Paul Tortelier, playing with his wife Maude!). Of course, original double concertos do exist; those of Klengel and Moor immediately come to mind.
However, something highlighting Johann Sebastian Bach is surely a nice feature? The two-violin concerto is not, in my opinion, too ’cellistic’ in whichever key you put it, although I did prepare the slow movement many years ago. But this present one, with oboe and violin soloists, does offer (I think) greater delight for two cellos. However, something highlighting Johann Sebastian Bach is surely a nice feature?!
This concerto for oboe, violín and orchestra by Johann Sebastian Bach was written in 1736, yet not published until about 1920. How is this possible?! Well, this very music was arranged by composer himself as the Concerto for 2 Harpsichords in C minor, BWV 1060. However, the original ‘creation’ was lost.
So, not surprisingly, there were attempts by Bach experts to reconstructed the “original” version based on the later arrangement for 2 harpsichords. Wilfried Fischer’s reconstruction first appeared in 1970 and is generally used today, though there is an earlier one by Max Seiffert from 1920 (Seiffert’s reconstruction has the same number of bars for mvts, 1 and 2 but the 3rd movement is 4 bars less)
In David Johnstone’s preparation for TWO SOLO CELLOS we use the Fischer.
