Dunedin Consort - Bach
Live from St John's, Smith Square
As part of the Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music, Dunedin Consort and players perform music by Bach. They play the third of his Brandenburg concertos, written in 1718 and widely regarded as the musical masterpieces of the Baroque era, and two cantatas: No. 207 Vereinigte Zwietracht der wechselnden Saiten (United discords of quivering strings) and No. 201 Geschwinde, ihr wirbelnden Winde (The Contest of Phoebus and Pan). The programme explores the way in which Bach's instrumental and choral music are conceptually close to one another, with both types of music playing on the idea of dialogue and conversation.
