The 2018 Brandenburg Series across the UK sees the London Concertante perform two hallmark works of the Baroque era: J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos nos. 4 and 5.

Compiled as a set of six concertos in 1721, and dedicated to the Margrave of Brandenburg, Bach employed a varied and daring combination of textures throughout the pieces pushing new boundaries with each manuscript: the first is in four movements while the rest have three; the second boasts a contrapuntal masterclass with five soloists playing simultaneous; and the sixth has no violins!

The works remain peerless in their singularness even today.
