Bach's intricate 'triple' concerto for keyboard, violin and flute is a challenge, containing much brilliant passagework. The less formidable slow movement was taken from the organ sonata No. 3. It is a companion to the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, the first movement of which is included on this album. An extremely rewarding and enjoyable piece for study. Also included on this album is the first movement of the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, written for harpsichord, flute, violin and orchestra, was Bach's first truly original keyboard concerto and is a unique work full of bravura passages. An eternal favorite! Conductor: Emil Kahn. Soloist: Neill Eisenstein, piano. Ensemble: Stuttgart Festival Orchestra.
