Bach - Transcriptions of Baroque Concertos

During his Weimar period, Johann Sebastian Bach composed a wealth of works. Among them are the 22 solo keyboard transcriptions of concertos by his Italian and German contemporaries: six for organ (BWV 592–596) and 16 for single-manual keyboard (BWV 972–987). The latter includes many famous baroque concertos by for example Vivaldi, Marcello and Telemann. This collection of 16 works is now available for download from Piano Street’s online sheet music library. Read more >>

Here are a few to start off:

Not sure whether all these count as "obscure", but I certainly find them to be some of the best things good ole Ferenc ever wrote:

Perhaps I went a bit overboard, but I really think pretty much all of these deserve more attention. Also, I have many more that I will list in another post when I have more time.

not only rarely heard, but so much like Schubert, it would be hard to place the composer just by listening if you had never heard it, I would certainly not guess Liszt. but it is, and it's lovely.
