Concerto in g minor BWV 1056 & BWV 156
for oboe and orchestra
by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)- German Baroque composer
I. Moderato
II. Adagio
III. Presto (Allegro)

Edited by Winifred Radeke. Piano Reduction by Ulrich Haverkampf. 

The present edition is derived from the justified assumption that Bach's Harpsichord Concertos BWV 1052-58 are original arrangements of solo concertos for other instruments, and can be reconstructed back to their original work form on the basis of the characteristics found in the solo parts. The editor of the present concerto chooses the oboe – an instrument that often plays characteristically exposed roles in Bach's cantatas – as the solo for his transformation of the Harpsichord Concerto in f minor BWV 1056, whereby the work was transposed one whole-tone higher. The Sinfonia of the Cantata BWV 156 "Ich steh mit einem Fuss im Grabe" provides the editor with an orientation in his reconstruction of the slow middle movement.
