BRANDENBURG 300Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos: wellbeing and aspiration
OCTOBER 2021 – MARCH 2022
NEW COLLEGE CHAPEL
We’re delighted to present our Brandenburg 300 series.
Just over 300 years ago, on 24 March 1721, Johann Sebastian Bach presented a set of six concertos to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg. Supernaturally dazzling in richness and variety, and deliberately virtuosic in scope, their survival is almost an accident. Their emphasis on many diverse instruments creates a communal rather than a soloistic experience of the concerto.
In the wake of the lockdowns and terrible hardships our communities have endured, an increased interest in wellbeing and mental health has come into focus.
Connecting with the Zeitgeist, our concerts proffer Bach’s music as a resource for increasing wellbeing and aspiration in six themes: spirit, mind, people, body, place, planet. Together with the cantatas that ‘mirror’ them, the Brandenburg Concertos tell a story of love, balance, empowerment, dance, wonder, and stewardship.
Join us as we unlock these inspiring themes with the greatest music ever written.
