Die Brandenburgischen Konzerte sind eine Gruppe von sechs Konzerten von Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051). Sie sind dem Markgrafen Christian Ludwig von Brandenburg-Schwedt (1677–1734) gewidmet, den Bach im Winter 1718/1719 in Berlin kennengelernt hatte. Im September 1721 schickte er ihm die Partitur mit einer umfangreichen Widmung. Der Titel Brandenburgische Konzerte wurde von Philipp Spitta in seiner 1873–1879 entstandenen Bach-Biografie geprägt und hat sich heute allgemein durchgesetzt. Bachs Originaltitel lautet „Six Concerts Avec plusieurs Instruments”. Die sechs Konzerte weisen eine hohe stilistische und strukturelle Vielfalt auf. In ihrer Mischung der verschiedensten historischen und zukunftsweisenden Elemente bilden sie eine ganz persönliche und trotzdem allgemeingültige Ausdrucksform.

Les concertos brandebourgeois sont un ensemble de six concertos de Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046 à 1051), qui comptent parmi les plus renommés qu’il ait composés. Le qualificatif de brandebourgeois est dû à Philipp Spitta qui, suivant l’usage germanique, fait référence au dédicataire, le margrave Christian Ludwig de Brandebourg.

Bach – Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 In F Major, BWV 1046


The Brandenburg concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051, original title: Six Concerts à plusieurs instruments) are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, in 1721 (though probably composed earlier). They are widely regarded as among the finest musical compositions of the Baroque era.

Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major, BWV 1046

Cologne Chamber Orchestra
Helmut Muller-Bruhl

Title on autograph score: Concerto 1mo à 2 Corni di Caccia, 3 Hautb: è Bassono, Violino Piccolo concertato, 2 Violini, una Viola è Violoncello, col Basso Continuo.
Allegro
Adagio
Allegro
Menuet – Trio I – Menuet da capo – Polacca – Menuet da capo – Trio II – Menuet da capo

Instrumentation: two corni da caccia, three oboes, bassoon, violino piccolo, and two violins, viola, cello, and basso continuo.

This concerto is the only one in the collection with four movements. An earlier version (Sinfonia, BWV 1046a) which does not use the violino piccolo was used for the opening of cantata BWV 208. This version lacks the third movement entirely, and the Polacca from the final movement, leaving Menuet – Trio I – Menuet – Trio II – Menuet. The first movement can also be found as the sinfonia of the cantata Falsche Welt, dir trau ich nicht, BWV 52. The third movement was used as the opening chorus of cantata BWV 207.
