Florilegium – The Complete Brandenburg Concertos at St George's Bristol

About

JS Bach’s gift of six concertos to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721 was conceived as an elaborate and ultimately unsuccessful pitch for courtly employment. For their melodic and harmonic invention, and for the sheer variety of their instrumental line-ups, ‘The Brandenburgs’ have rightly come to be celebrated as one of the crowning musical achievements of the Baroque era.

One of the world’s great baroque ensembles, an expanded 20-plus Florilegium brings
these masterpieces to life in all their glorious colour – the soaring solo trumpet of the
second concerto, the three-way virtuosity for flute, violin and harpsichord in the fifth, pairs of horns and recorders dominating the first and fourth, and distinctive string line-ups characterising the third and sixth concertos.

‘ This is consummate musicmaking that reflects the players’ evident joy with this repertoire. And by adjusting the order and the instrumentation, Florilegium has given us a particularly fresh and vibrant-sounding reading’ CLASSIC FM
