Bach e Telemann
Bach e Telemann
  • Barroca
  • M/6
  • This will be Rachel Podger's long-awaited return to the direction of Orquestra Barroca. The acclaimed violinist and conductor is the founder and Artistic Director of the Brecon Baroque Festival and has an outstanding artistic career, with two Gramophone Awards, a Diapason d'Or de l’Année and a BBC Music Magazine award, among many other accolades. The programme arose from the close relationship between three compelling composers of the 18th century: J. S. Bach and Telemann, two masters of the Baroque, and Carl Philip Emanuel Bach, godson of Telemann and an essential figure in the transition from the Galant style to Classicism. Noteworthy is Bach’s famous Suite No. 2, with an extremely virtuous writing for the flute which, in this concert, will be performed by Rachel Podger's violin.
