Cover: Sonata in G minorThe David Watkins Collection

VOLUME XVII - Johann Sebastian Bach
LARGO from the Concerto for Two Violins

for Two Violins & Two Harps (or two melodic instruments, harp and piano)

Arranged by David Watkins

Volume XVII  - RRP £12.00 + p&p

I made this arrangement for a concert in Chelsea Town Hall, when I was Patron for the Charity "Concertina". Michael Bochmann and I thought it would be great if we could involve two talented young musicians - Giles Thirkettle (violin) and Verity Thirkettle (harp).

This Largo is one of the most beautiful slow movements ever written and the ingenious counterpoint between the two solo violins combine to create music with the greatest emotional impact.

Performance Note:
The second harp part can be played on a keyboard instrument - piano or preferably a harpsichord or organ.

Available on line from Creighton's Collection
and all other good harp stores.
