Concerto for 2 pianos BWV 1062
Concerto for 3 pianos BWV 1063
Concerto for 4 pianos BWV 1065


Approximate running time
1st part: 50mn - Intermission: 20mn - 2nd part: 30mn

In addition to his vast corpus for solo piano, Bach also composed six concertos for different piano configurations (BWV 1060 to BWV 1065). In this series, the three double concertos (BWV 1060, 1061 and 1062) rank very highly and all boast an extraordinary polyphonic richness. However, the apogee of the art is the sublime concerto for four pianos (BWV 1065) in which the musician displays his consummate skill in the allocation of parts between the four instruments. David Fray is in good company for this rare performance of the almost complete series.
