Music is a generative expression of our thoughts and feelings.  A couple of weeks ago we featured the adagio from Bach’s BWV 974 – guess where he transcribed it from?  You guessed it gentle reader, this particular oboe concerto.  The video is cued to the adagio, but feel free to listen to the allegro and presto as well.

Being a pianist I’m a bit biased toward the transcription for keyboard, but the original work more than holds its own.
