Could there be a more beloved sampling of concertos than Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos 3+4+5? Dazzlingly inventive, virtuosic, exuberant, inspired. And experiencing them performed—as they were meant to be heard—on period instruments with our star-studded cast of principals as the soloists is priceless! And adding spice to the performance, enjoy the spirited dancing rhythms and brilliant flute in Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2.
“Their virtuosity represents not only a pinnacle of modern playing technique on period instruments, but the summit of Bach’s highly personal take on the Italian concerto style.”
