Brandenburg Concerto no. 2 (BWV 1047)

Here is a rendition of Bach's second Brandenburg concerto by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, using "historically informed" or period instruments, including a natural trumpet:

1. Allegro Moderato

2. Andante

3. Allegro Assai

I have to admit that I found the physical movements of the players a bit hurky-jerky

BMW 1047? I'm no Bachian but I'm certain that his works aren't listed according to Bavarian Motor Works number.

Indeed they aren't, so I fixed it.
