The Fourth Brandenburg Concerto is unique in that it is the only of the six in which all instruments are used in all movements. Composition 1719–20 First Publication 1851 - Leipzig: C.F. Peters The Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051, original title: Six Concerts à plusieurs instruments) are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, in 1721 (though probably composed earlier).
