This concert captures the essence of Bachs compositional wizardry, heightened with the wit and spark of PBOs period performance style. The beloved Suite No 3, with its famous Air, delights with courtly charm and dancing rhythms. The Concerto for Three Violins beguiles with its breathless pacing and brilliantly imagined writing. The Trio Sonata from the ingenious Musical Offering intrigues, while Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, with guest soloist Matthew Halls, bedazzles with its near-superhuman harpsichord cadenza.
