Orchestral Suite No 1 in B minor, age 41
- Oboe I/II, bassoon
- violin I/II, viola
- basso continuo
This one is Bb minor, a key Bach would never have written, which is why it’s really in B minor, on the page. But it’s played down 1/2 step, to conform to modern assumptions of pitch in the time of Bach. Once again I love the sound these guys make, and Sato conducts with his head, bow and eyes.
- Rondeaux by Bach
- Bourrée I/II
