But it will at least be seen that the offered interpretations are the product, not of mere fantasy, but of an intuition guided by principle. 9 BORN 1685, IN EISENACH. DIED 1750, IN LEIPZIG BACH The Brandenburg Concertos BACH'S six Brandenburg Concertos represent his most ambitious effort toward composition for a considerable number of instruments — that is to say, for the orchestra, as that body was constituted in his day.

The second solo violin enters without introduction, singing a streaming line of melody that has most of the virtues and none of the vices of the music of the romantic composers. ) The first violin answers with the same phrase in higher register, and the two soli, finding other figures and supported by the warmest of accompanying harmonies, pursue their way through a long movement that never departs from sweetness, yet never becomes cloying.
