In 1721, Johann Sebastian Bach dedicated six concerti grossi to the Margrave of Brandenburg – six controlled explosions of fantasy, melody and exuberant joy, glowing with all the colours of the baroque orchestra at its most unbuttoned. Hearing all the Brandenburg Concertos in one concert is a feast for the ear and refreshment for the spirit. And that’s exactly what Academy of Ancient Music is offering tonight, as AAM Music Director Laurence Cummings plays as first among equals in music that never grows old. When performed with the period instruments and historically-informed playing techniques of AAM, Bach’s inspiration and vitality simply sings through: more vivid, more entertaining and more original than ever. This should be a treat. There will be a free pre-concert talk at 6.30pm


A limited number of tickets is available for under-35s as part of AAM’s AAMplify Audiences scheme. To find out more, visit
