    The popular work known today as the Italian Concerto was published as Part 2 of Johann Sebastian Bach's Clavier-Übung in 1735, together with the Overture in B minor (BWV 831). Publications of music were a rarity in those days, and it stands to reason that Bach would select only pieces he found superior and representative. Originally written for a two-manual harpsichord, this music with its terrace dynamics alternating between piano and forte also reveals its full beauty when played on a modern piano where the lively interchange between the soloist and an imaginary orchestral tutti is successfully imitated.
