In 1721, Bach dedicated a cycle of six concertos to the Margrave of Brandenburg, an uncle of the King of Prussia. An “art of concerto” by Bach, these highly virtuoso “six concerts with several instruments” call on strings and other solo instruments like the harpsichord or trumpet, in a mixture of styles dominated by the Italian concerto genre, but also demonstrating the composer’s exceptional mastery of German counterpoint harmony, and French influence.
The result forms an exceptional corpus, from a voluble ancient style viola concerto with seven interpreters to an orchestral form with 19 musicians including two horns and three oboes.
Thirty years after his iconic recording, Reinhard Goebel comes back to this work with the virtuoso Berliner Barock Solisten, for a storm of music.
Incredible energy, breathtaking rhythms, colours everywhere for this revival at the Royal Opera.
