About This Event

Bach specialist John Butt and his period-instrument Dunedin Consort continue our series of composer themed nights as a tribute to Proms founder conductor Henry Wood.

They pair Bach’s four Orchestral Suites with four newly commissioned works taking inspiration from the suites’ dance movements – providing both companions and contrasts.

Bach's suites are interspersed with four new works from Stuart MacRae, Nico Muhly, Ailie Robertson and Stevie Wishart (BBC co-commissions with the Dunedin Consort: world premieres).

Approx. end time: 21:45
