Hear all of the Brandenburg Concertos – six Baroque masterpieces that need no introduction. 

Each concerto has its own unique structure and personality, but all are technically impressive and emotionally raw. The Brandenburgs have been an important part of the OAE’s history since a landmark recording 25 years ago. This concert provides a rare chance to hear them revived in their entirety.

  • Enjoyed this concert very much. Interesting to hear all these concertos side by side. Great virtuosity from all especially the trumpet. Bach’s skills brought home to me by an authentic orchestra.
