Third Concerto, in D Minor Bach Suite for Two Violins .. Godard
THE original String accompaniment of the Concerto will tonight be played on the Piano. The Movements are as follows :—
FIRST MOVEMENT. The interest of this lies in a happily bustling tune, taken up in alternation by the two Violin parts. Sometimes one Solo Violin starts a Tune which is then taken up (almost in Fugue style) by the other.
Note especially the opening
Tune; this is important. It often recurs, and may be looked upon as the Main Tune of the Movement.
SECOND MOVEMENT. This is a very expressive
Movement, and has become famous. We have, in fact, a Violin Duet with a quiet accompaniment.
THIRD MOVEMENT. In spirit, style, and construction this is so like the First Movement as to call for little description.
The Soto Violins begin in imitation at a mere beat's distance, and keep up a vigorous and cheerful motion all through.
