BACH, Johann Sebastian, 1685-1750

[Brandenburg Concerti, BWV 1046-1051] Brandenburgische Konzerte. Faksimile des Autographen. Faksimileausgabe nach dem Autograph Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußische Kulturbesitz, Musikabteilung, Am.B.78.
Leipzig, 4/ 1996. Oblong, 33 x 26 cm, 170 pp. Halftone monochrome of the dedication autograph score—dated 24 March 1721—for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Bach's elegantly penned title "Concerts avec plusieurs instruments" (concertos with several instruments) is a somewhat modest description of the concertos to follow, in that many different combinations of instruments and sonorities are exploited, perhaps deliberately to get the Margrave's attention and approval, not unlike the way Mozart used his Gran Partita to introduce himself to the Viennese public. Sadly the autograph score was left unused in the Margrave's library until his death in 1734, the reason being (it is believed) that he lacked the musicians to perform the concertos. One of the great gems of Western music, this facsimile is a perfect gift for any wind or string player, harpsichordist, conductor or music lover. Handsome binding in brown linen with lettering in gold. $285 (more info... ) [item no.7619]

Jenkins, John. Fantasia-Suites: II. Transcribed and Edited by Andrew Ashbee.
Musica Britannica, LXXVIII. London, 2010. 4º, xxxii, 159 pp. Modern critical edition. This collection includes the fantasia-suites for treble, two basses and organ by John Jenkins. Though it is impossible to date these pieces precisely, the abandonment of the galliard third movement in favor of the corant suggests a provenance later than that of the fantasia-suites in vol.I (MB 78). The virtuoso writing of the “divisions” is among the most demanding of all English consort music, and each of the nine suites commences with an extended fugal section as elaborate as anything found in the composer's viol fantasies—that of the seventh being undoubtedly amongst his finest works. Also included are the 29 surviving bass parts of the Divisions for Treble and Two Basses. Buckram. $146 [item no.6889]

Ward, John. Consort Music of Four Parts. Transcribed and Edited by Ian Payne.
Musica Britannica, LXXXIII. London, 2005. 4°. xxxviii, 106 pp. Modern edition. John Ward's music for 4 viols shows less consistency of style than his work for 5- or 6-part consort. The smooth madrigalian lines of the 6 Oxford fantasias most clearly approach the accomplishment of his characteristic pieces for larger ensembles. The Paris fantasias, which with the In nomines also included in the collection feature uniquely in a single source in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, are more variable in texture and idiom. The volume also includes 6 ayres for two bass viols and organ, brief, tuneful compositions in dance-like rhythm redolent of the almain. Buckram. $143 [item no.6563]
