BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS 7-12
Concerto Copenhagen's musicians present six new "Brandenburg Concertos" based on Bach's own music.
Inspired by J. S. Bach's own frequent reuse and rewrites, oboist Antoine Torunczyk - in close collaboration with Concerto Copenhagen's musicians - has orchestrated Bach's six organ trio sonatas using the Brandenburg Concertos as a model. In the work on the new "Brandenburg Concertos", Antoine Torunczyk and the musicians have followed the original ones in several ways: both Bach's use of a wide range of instruments - including several that are very rare today - and the way Bach varies and mixes instrumentation and function - solo and accompanying - have served as inspiration, and you will be able to experience, among others, obo da caccia, viola d'amore and violoncello da spalla. The goal is that the original three-part music from the organ trio sonatas now appears bright, light and transparent with a wide color palette from the exotic baroque instruments.
