Sinfonia in D major, BWV 1045,[lower-alpha 1] specifically known as, Violin Concerto movement BWV 1045, is an orchestral work for solo violin, three trumpets, timpani, two oboes, strings and Continuo by Johann Sebastian Bach.[1] A late work composed in Leipzig between c.1742 and 1746,[2] surviving only as a fragment,[3][4] the Concerto is often considered a sinfonia of a lost cantata.[5][6][7]

Eric David Mackerness in Music Review described BWV 1045 as "second rate Bach" and violinistically "unmanageable".[8][9]
