Bach - Brandenburg Concertos Nos 2, 5 and 4

Live from St James's Church, Chipping Campden, as part of the Chipping Campden Music Festival.

Presented by Louise Fryer.

The British baroque ensemble Florilegium are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, and what better way to do it than with the complete Brandenburg Concertos by Bach. A fitting celebration also for the Chipping Campden Music Festival, in its 10th season. Bach presented these glorious works to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721. The manuscript contained six concertos for chamber orchestra based on the Italian concerto grosso style, each with a different combination of soloists, and each is a masterpiece.
