Notes

Recorded in London, Henry Wood Hall, 1980.
Pitch: a'= 415 Hz. (unequal temperament).
The English Concert performs on authentic instruments.
Of the 3 Bach concertos for 2 harpsichords, at least 2 are a result of transcriptions:
BWV 1060 comes from a double concert for violin and oboe (now lost).
BWV 1062 comes from the concert for 2 violins BWV 1043.
Chances are that BWV 1061 might be an original work, even though many scholars believe the accompaniement might have been added later.
