Many of Bach’s most eloquent statements were made at the organ keyboard, where he would improvise on Lutheran chorale tunes and spin complex webs of counterpoint. Bach was also a master of instrumental music, and his violin concertos are melodically rich and highly virtuosic works. Les Violons du Roy explores the best of both these worlds in a program that features concertos and striking new arrangements of the Leipzig master’s keyboard works.
