Brandenburg Concertos by Candlelight

The second instalment in our 2018 Season at St Martin-in-the-Fields sees the London Concertante perform two hallmark works of the Baroque era: J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no. 4 & 5. Compiled as a set of six concertos in 1721, and dedicated to the Margrave of Brandenburg, Bach employed a varied and daring combination of textures throughout the pieces pushing new boundaries with each manuscript: the first is in four movements while the rest have three; the second boasts a contrapuntal masterclass with five soloists playing simultaneous; and the sixth has no violins! The works remain peerless in their singularness even today.
