The Italian Concerto, BWV 971, originally titled Concerto nach Italienischen Gusto (Concerto in the Italian taste), is a three-movement concerto for two-manual harpsichord solo composed by Johann Sebastian Bach and published in 1735 as the first half of Clavier-Übung II (the second half being the French Overture). The Italian Concerto has become popular among Bach's keyboard works, and has been widely recorded both on the harpsichord and the piano.

Johann Sebastian Bach, Italian Concerto in F Major, BWV 971. Johann Sebastian Bach, Partita No. 4 in D Major, BWV 828. François Couperin, La Visionnaire. In this masterclass, Kenneth Gilbert renews acquaintance with a former student who has since become an established performer, Olivier Baumont. There follows a fascinating dialogue focusing on both the harpsichord and the organ, two instruments which the Canadian artist plays with the same skill. Two men, Kenneth Gilbert, in his prime, slow of speech and sure of himself, and Olivier Baumont, a younger artist, tousled and profound, are sitting at a period harpsichord discussing Couperin, Bach, and Froberger. The master gives his point of view in a soft, steady voice

Full marks to Olivier Baumont for enterprise! He has here sought out almost completely unknown harpsichord pieces by Russian and Russia-based composers (the instrument continued to be popular in Russia into the early nineteenth century) and recorded them on a Shudi/Broadwood of 1770, most appropriately, since it is known that Shudi shipped two of his harpsichords to Russia in 1772 and 1773.
