Concerto Köln performs concertos by the Baroque masters from Amsterdam's legendary Royal Concertgebouw.

Presented by Fiona Talkington

Founded in 1989, Concerto Köln has become one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic early music ensembles. In this programme, recorded in April in the glorious acoustic of Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw, its players contrast a concise yet dazzling concerto written by Vivaldi for the orphan girls of Venice's Ospedale della Pieta with the fifth of Bach's inventive "Brandenburg" concertos with solo parts for harpsichord, violin and flute.

Vivaldi: Concerto for Strings in A, RV.158
Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D, BWV.1050
Evgeny Sviridov, violin
