Stringendo Magazine (October 2019)
The preface for these scores written by Editor Marco Serino is outstanding. Serino reconstructed these concertos and the clarity of his description of his thought process is quite superb. ... The sources Serino has used to reconstruct Bach’s violin concertos are: the three surviving violin concertos, in the double version for violin and harpsichord, in which it is possible to observe unmistakably Bach’s modus operandi in the transposition of the concertos from violin to harpsichord; the manuscripts of the harpsichord concertos in the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin dated 1738, which represent the primary source of his transcriptions; the Vivaldi concertos of the Weimar years, where it was possible to see the transcription techniques used by Bach; and lastly, the cantatas in which Bach used entire movements of concertos already in existence before the harpsichord versions. Serino then fleshes out his reconstruction process in even more fascinating detail. Sets of parts and the solo parts can be obtained with the scores. (Andrew Lorenz)
