  • In 1721, Bach dedicated an ensemble of “Six concerts with several instruments” to the Markgrave of Brandenburg: enter the Brandenburg Concertos…

    This tribute to the Prince, whom Bach met in 1719, was certainly very political, as there were only six musicians in his orchestra, and the works assembled by Bach are a compilation of compositions written in Köthen during the previous years, requiring virtuosos for the soloist parts. In any event, the masterpiece is there, a demonstration of Bach’s genius in creating a new type of concerto, which is not really Italian and not in the French style either, an original form structured by its luxuriant composition and magnificent melodies. The concertos follow one another but are intended for different numbers of musicians and different solo instruments, united by Bach’s invention. The composition’s fate is on par with the beauties it contains and is a founding stone of orchestra and chamber music.

    The wonderful harpsichord player, Bertrand Cuiller, created his ensemble Le Cravanserail in 2015 on the occasion of his 2015-2017 residence at the Fondation Royaumont. He interprets baroque and classical works with the communicative energy and warmth that are his personal signature.

    Associate production: Fondation Royaumont | Coproduction: Festival de la Chaise Dieu, Festival de Besançon, Arsenal de Metz,Théâtre de Caen.
