Bach and Handel, the two giants of baroque music, were born in 1685 just a month and 200 km apart. Their personalities led them down different career paths but their music achieved similar levels of greatness. Our concert explores aspects of their varied orchestral output highlighting differences and similarities, influences and developments.
The gorgeous opening sinfonia from one of Bach's secular cantatas is virtually a flute concerto. The flute is joined by violin in the sublime  slow movement of the triple concerto, framed by exciting fast movements with virtuosic writing for the harpsichord especially . The two concerti grossi show Handel's skills in writing colourful instrumental music, from the masterly op 6 set and the more purely entertaining op 3 set. The famous Bach Orchestral Suite shows Bach's use in his orchestral writing of varied dance forms taken from the typical French suite after the magisterial opening overture.
