Concerto in A minor BWV 593 (Allegro, Adagio, Allegro) for Piano Duet

By Vivaldi / Bach, Arr. Simon Peberdy

$6.50, for Piano Duet

All 4 movements of this concerto, originally by Vivaldi, then re-arranged by Bach as an organ concerto, and now by me as a piano duet. This duet had its first public performance 27.10.13 at a concertHampton Court Palace. Bach derived much inspiration from the music of Antonio Vivaldi, and from 1713-1714 Bach transcribed at least nine concertos of Vivaldi’s concertos, three for solo organ and six for solo harpsichord. Bach’s concerto in A minor for organ is his arrangement of Vivaldi’s concerto op.3 no. 6 for 2 violins and basso continuo RV522, and this piano duet is an arrangement of Bach’s arrangement of Vivaldi’s concerto! This pdf is the full concerto (1. Allegro, 2. Adagio, 3. Allegro), the mp3 clip is of only the 1st movement. The whole concerto is great fun to play, with plenty of scope for fingers getting tangled together, or even arms if you're not careful.

I received a link to a video of a lovely performance of the first movement given by twin sisters in Slovakia [] (Arranged in 2011)
