Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival: Event 1
In this programme celebrating music by JS Bach, Florilegium present concertos by the great Master in various different guises. The first half consists of three of his Brandenburg Concerti, sent as a collection of six to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721. They perfectly demonstrate his mastery in combining different sets of solo instruments, showcasing violas and viola da gambas (Brandenburg 6), 9 solo string parts (Brandenburg 3) as well as the unusual combination of harpsichord, flute and violin (Brandenburg 5). The second half offers further solo opportunities for Bojan Cicic and Ashley Solomon in two of his most popular instrumental works.
‘sensitive phrasing, genuine rhythmic bounce, and when necessary, the smooth touch of a silk cravat.’ The Times
