J.S. Bach: The Brandenburg Concertos

The Brandenburg Concertos form a kind of master anthology, a demonstration of all the imaginable possibilities inherent in a certain musical form. Each of the six concertos calls for a different combination of soloists, each one unprecedented in its choice of instruments and still without parallel today. All the concertos demand and celebrate the performer's virtuosity as much as they demonstrate Bach's wonderful skill.The union of joyful music-making and compositional brilliance combine to put the Brandenburgs among those rare works that delight connoisseurs and amateurs alike.
