    Like the Italian Concerto for solo harpsichord (BWV 971), the _Concerto a due cembali_ is Bach's only concerto expressly written for two unaccompanied harpsichords. He probably composed it in Leipzig some time around 1733; later he provided an alternative version with a string ripieno in the first and third movements.
