    Bach: Brandenburg Concertos 6 To 1

    In a strange twist of fate, the Brandenburg Concertos have come to be named after an aristocrat who didn’t particularly want them and never actually heard them. The six concertos form a master anthology, a demonstration of all the imaginable possibilities inherent in a given musical form. Each concerto calls for a different combination of soloists, every one innovative and unprecedented in its choice of instruments. Florilegium uniquely performs them in reverse of the numbered order, ending with the triumphant first concerto combining wind, strings and brass.

    This is consummate music-making that reflects the players’ evident joy with this repertoire. Florilegium gives us a particularly fresh and vibrant sounding reading.’ Classic FM
