Chamber Music

Double Bach with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin

Not only Johann Sebastian, but also his cousin Johann Bernhard Bach was a master of the composer’s craft. In this concert, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin – since 1982 one of the top historically informed performance ensembles – juxtaposes works by the two Baroque masters. In addition to two orchestral suites, the programme includes concertos for three and four harpsichords and orchestra which were written during Johann Sebastian Bach’s years in Leipzig.
