Concerto in E minor
From the Publisher
Franz Benda belongs to the so-called "Berlin or North German School" which became extremely significant in the second half of the 18th century particularly in the field of instrumental music and which made the transition from the baroque to the classical period together with the Mannheim School. In the works of the Berlin School, the strict counterpoint of the predecessors is loosened by a freer and melodically pleasant, almost "galant" style and often even completely displaced.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
