As musicologists of the 20th century have already noted, some of Johann Sebastian Bach’s compositional structures clearly show that they are based on transcriptions.

NeoBaroque now makes these findings audible and presents reconstructions of the presumed original versions of the famous Double Concerto for two violins (BWV 1043), the Violin Sonata in A major (BWV 1015) and the two Gamba Sonatas in D major and G minor (BWV 1028 and 1029).
A groundbreaking new discovery in Bach’s chamber music oeuvre in the innovative interpretations of NeoBaroque.

An informative booklet text in German, Englisch, French and Russian explains the background.
