Harpsichordist Andrew Arthur says, “Bach’s seven concertos for solo harpsichord and strings occupy a significant place in the history of music, marking as they do the origin of the keyboard concerto genre. Collectively, they encompass the gamut of Baroque rhetorical expression; indeed, leaving aside the six ground-breaking Brandenburg Concertos…it is difficult to think of a more diverse, revolutionary, and technically refined set of instrumental concertos from the Baroque period.” For their first recording on Signum Classics, the Hanover Band and Andrew Arthur present four of these revolutionary concertos.
