This is the perfect occasion to enjoy of Bach’s concertos for one, two and three violins, masterpieces of the genre and of late baroque, combining virtuosity and expressing singing in a tribute to the German composer. At the age of thirty-two, Bach was Master of Music at the Court of Köthen, giving it a reputation for the most splendid instrumental music. With an orchestra and prodigious soloists at his disposal, he composed violin concertos to dazzle the Prince whom he served: a mission accomplished with true panache!
