J.S. Bach can easily be called the most important classical composer in history, due to his own work and for his influence on every composer who has come since. A great architect, Bach had a unique way of creating pieces that spanned a wide range of emotions and techniques. His six Brandenburg Concertos, four of which will be played here, reflect his stylistic versatility as he uses a variety of instruments and combinations to explore the different feelings and colors of sound.
