    J.S. Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
    J.S. Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 6
    J.S. Bach Concerto for Two Violins in D minor

Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D minor is a remarkable work, serious yet thrilling. The first movement is a fugue which builds excitement as the soloists start chasing after one another. It is spellbinding; at times the two violins play entirely different melodies, yet inextricably intertwined. The graceful second movement is perhaps the most affecting of Bach's entire concerto repertoire, with its achingly beautiful main melody. In the finale, the dialogue between the two violins is endlessly fascinating, and show us the dazzling heights of Bach’s musical ingenuity.
