The harpsichord concertos, BWV 1052– 1065, are concertos for harpsichord, strings and continuo by Johann Sebastian Bach. There are seven complete concertos for a single harpsichord (BWV 1052–1058), three concertos for two harpsichords (BWV 1060–1062), two concertos for three harpsichords (BWV 1063 and 1064), and one concerto for four harpsichords (BWV 1065). Two other concertos include solo harpsichord parts: the concerto BWV 1044, which has solo parts for harpsichord, violin and flute, and Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D major, with the same scoring. In addition there is a nine-bar concerto fragment for harpsichord (BWV 1059) which adds an oboe to the strings and continuo All of Bach’s harpsichord concertos (with the exception of the Brandenburg concerto) are thought to be arrangements made from earlier concertos for melodic instruments probably written in Köthen. In many cases, only the harpsichord version has survived.

B'Rock

B’Rock Orchestra was founded in 2005 on the initiative of harpsichordist, composer and conductor Frank Agsteribbe, double bass player Tom Devaere and cultural managers Tomas Bisschop and Hendrik Storme. The orchestra’s home is in Ghent. B’Rock Orchestra arose from a sense of renewal and rejuvenation in the world of early music. The core consists of about twenty musicians from Belgium and abroad, specializing in historically informed performing practice. B’Rock Orchestra distinguishes itself by a performance-oriented and style-conscious manner of playing, in which intensity and expression play a central part. The orchestra’s programme is setting works from baroque literature in a context of lesser known repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition, the orchestra focuses on the realisation and creation of modern music on historic instruments. Under the name B’Rock XS, the orchestra develops cross-border programmes of chamber music
