Concertos don't take up a huge amount of room in the Bach canon, and the violin concertos take up even less room. In fact, you can count his completed violin concertos on one hand. So why, if they're so insignificant in his career, do we still cherish, hear and play these works so often? The answer is simple: because they are Bach’s violin concertos.
This is the main thought behind the Capella Cracoviensis concert cycle Bach & Co. focused on this composer in particular and this specific genre. We will hear Bach’s concertos in A minor and D minor for two violins, other works pf the Leipzig cantor corresponding or contrasting with his violin concertos and works by other Baroque composers.
