The Harpsichord Concerto No 1 in D minor, BWV 1052, is Johannes Sebastian Bach first harpsichord concerto. Like the other harpsichord concertos, BWV 1052 is generally believed to be a transcription of a lost concerto composed in Cöthen or Weimar and many scholars suggested that the original melody instrument was probably the violin, because of the many violinistic figurations in the solo part.
The concerto has similarities with Vivaldi’s highly virtuosic Grosso Mogul violin concerto, RV 208, which Bach had previously transcribed for solo organ in BWV 594. It has 3 movements: I. Allegro II. Adagio III. Allegro.
