For this exceptional concert of Bach’s famous concertos for violin, Théotime Langlois de Swarte, the young baroque violin prodigy, will direct the Orchestra of the Opéra Royal for the very first time. He is also the first baroque violinist to win an award at the Victoires de la Musique classique (Classical Music Awards) in 2020, in recognition of his work in several baroque ensembles such as Les Arts Florissants and Les Ombres.
This is the perfect occasion to enjoy of Bach’s concertos for one, two and three violins, masterpieces of the genre and of late baroque, combining virtuosity and expressing singing in a tribute to the German composer. At the age of thirty-two, Bach was Master of Music at the Court of Köthen, giving it a reputation for the most splendid instrumental music. With an orchestra and prodigious soloists at his disposal, he composed violin concertos to dazzle the Prince whom he served: a mission accomplished with true panache!
