“To be Bach or Not to be Bach” is a program of three works for violin and harpsichord that have been attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach. Their BWV catalog numbers suggest that they are original compositions by the famed composer—but are they? Performed on period instruments, this program paints a picture of the musical world in which Bach lived.
Bach, Suite for Violin and Harpsichord in A Major, BWV 1025
Bach, Sonata for Violin and Continuo in C Minor, BWV 1024
Bach, Sonata for Violin and Obbligato Harpsichord in E Major, BWV 1016
III. Adagio ma non tanto
