Although he never left Germany, Johan Sebastian Bach was able to immerse himself in a rich musical world. He consumed the compositions of his time voraciously and corresponded with many of the leading musical figures of Europe.
This concert from Australia is packed with music by composers Bach admired: Telemann, the godfather of CPE Bach; Zelenka, the esteemed Czech composer, and the other towering great of the era, Handel. We also rediscover the Baroque-inspired Concerto for string orchestra of Victorian composer Margaret Sutherland.
MSO Concertmaster Sophie Rowell joins MCO as guest director and soloist and plays Bach’s Violin Concerto No 1 in A minor BWV1041 amongst other gems.
All digital tickets come with 72-hour viewing starting from the morning after the concert. Go to your My Tickets folder in the top menu to watch the recording.
