Bach: Brandenburg Concertos
1 Apr 2006
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Other participants: Gottfried von der Goltz · Daniela Helm · Christian Goosses · Ulrike Kaufmann · Isabel Crijnen · Thera de Clerck · Michael Behringer · Karl Kaiser · Friedemann Immer · Katharina Arfken · Freiburger Barockorchester
The performance was given in the Bach Anniversary Year 2000 – 250 years after his death – in the elegant Hall of Mirrors at Coethen Castle.
The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra’s members all have virtuoso skills. They take the spotlight gracefully for solos but also play with the true ensemble spirit required by the music. Their decision to perform without a conductor revives an eighteenth century practice. A bonus film features several other famous and entertaining examples of Bach’s chamber music.
