Bach Concerto for 2 Violins in D minor, BWV 1043

Johann Sebastian Bach composed his Concerto Concerto for Two Violins, Strings and Continuo in D minor, BWV 1043, at some point between 1717 and 1723, while he was the Kapellmeister at the court of Anhalt-Köthen, Germany. The work is commonly referred to as 'Bach's double violin Concerto'. An earlier version of the concerto (known as 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.
