Bach's Vivaldian concertos- where to find scores?

Postby elvenpianist on Tue Jun 13, 2006 8:57 pm

My information tells me that they are BWV 972, 973, 975, 976, 978, and 980.

I desperately, madly want them. Listening to Vivaldi is my earliest musical memory and I love him deeply- I would love to join that love with my love of Bach in performing these keyboard concertos.

But I can't find scores, nor indeed any mention of them anywhere. Can anyone help me? I did manage to find some recordings of most of them- by Cyprian Katsaris, it is (of course :evil:) out of print so I'll have to dig it up somewhere.

Anyway if someone could point me towards some scores, it'd be insanely happy!

Thanks! :)

I can't find them anywhere.

I'm MORE than willing to pay for them, really. I just need a source, please!!!

:cry:

*has a thought*

hmmm... maybe if I embark on some secret reconnaissance missions to university music libraries... maybe one would have them? hmmm

I'm getting desperate!

WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Ok i got the book. :D

It. is so. incredibly. AWESOME.

Waaayyyy too much fun, I love it, lol.

I've been working on a lot of classical/romantic stuff, so sightreading some good ol' uber exciting fugal works transcribed from Vivaldi and Marcello at UB3R L337 SPPPP3333333333333DDDDDDDDD feels wonderful. lol.

Bach was the ultimate assimilator--then making that style inimitably his own (yet another facet of his genius).

I see you're following in his footsteps (your schubert transcript sounds awesome!).

I've been playing through more of the concertos today; can't believe they're not more widely known- they're really fantastic, and personally I think they're rather better performance pieces than the WTC. :?It's really incredible playing the ones I know the original work of; I feel so much more orchestral and grand, lol. It also makes me want to go ahead and try to transcribe some of my favorite Corelli and Vivaldi concertos.. mmmmm....

These are definitely on my "learn the complete" list now, right next to Chopin's mazurkas!
