Widely regarded as premier examples of Baroque orchestral music, the Brandenburg Concertos were composed by Johann Sebastian Bach between 1708 and 1721, commissioned for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Co-directors Aisslinn Nosky and Ian Watson will lead the Handel and Haydn Orchestra through all six concertos in an emotional and technically exemplary performance.
“Aisslinn and Ian will bring Bach’s vision to life, creating an unparalleled union between the composer, the musicians, and the audience with this performance of the complete Brandenburg Concertos,” said H+H President and CEO David Snead. “This performance is as close as possible to Bach’s original intention, interpreted through historically informed techniques and performed on the instruments from the composer’s period. It promises to be an exceptional evening.”
