Our series looking at turning points in the history of classical music continues with a concert featuring two of Bach’s masterpieces, his Double Violin Concerto and Brandenburg Concertos Nos 3 and 6. However, the real gamechanger on the programme is the rare concerto for the now ‘extinct’ violoncello da spalla (essentially a cello played under one’s chin), a piece which lay forgotten until as recently as 2004. At this concert it is performed by a gamechanger of a different sort- Sigiswald Kuijken, who directed our very first concert 27 years ago.
