The Bachs are the first family of Baroque. Over nearly 300 years, the estimated output of this musical family spans tens of thousands of works,
many considered the pinnacle of their form.

The Bachs’ enduring musical legacy continues to reach through the ages inspiring countless composers, performers and listeners alike.
Pre-eminent Baroque violinist Sato is one of the most sought after performers of his generation. This thrilling master musician will lead the Brandenburg
as Guest Director in a program which reveals that the Bachs were uniquely united in musical brilliance, despite significant stylistic differences.

Netherlands Bach Society guest artist and long-time Brandenburg friend, Emma Black, will join in a program including JS Bach’s reconstructed
Concerto for oboe and violin and other great works. The Bachs is a chance to experience two of the world’s most esteemed interpreters of Baroque music,
and to hear lesser-known works by members of the prodigious Bach family.
