Johann Sebastian Bach set a new precedent for the possibilities of every compositional genre.
In the Orchestral Suites, Bach conjures a spectacular celebration from a simple collection of dances, with a musical language that is both cosmic and deeply human.
Full of jubilation and the sheer splendour of sound, this is Bach at his most uplifting.
As poignant today as it was when it was written 300 years ago, the double violin concerto of Bach is a treasure of European art.
This celebration of Bach includes the third and fourth Orchestral Suites, the much-loved double violin concerto, and a new concerto by national treasure RIchard Mills.
Composer and conductor Mills turns 70 in 2018, and we are celebrating by commissioning a double concerto of our own.
With the solos performed by our orchestral players, don’t miss this chance to witness the next generation of talent take centre stage.
