An evening of Bach classics played in the cosy basement lounge of Fidelio cafe. We will explore the monumental Brandeburgh concerto no.5, perhaps the first glimmer of the piano concerto in the history of music. Formally a concerto grosso, involving harpsichord solo as well as a small set of solo instruments, this concerto ranks in the repertoire as a milestone of baroque orchestral perfection. As part of the programme, performers will also explore the polyphonic complexity of the Musical Offering. To wrap up, the short and sweet catchy tune of the Badinerie from the ultra-famous orchestral suite in B minor.
