Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5
The programme of this evening includes Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, L’Impériale from Les Nations by François Couperin and Rameau's Pièces de Clavecin en Concert. These are all fabulous pieces, each in its own style. Bach made a transcription of the Sonata from L’Impériale by Couperin. Bach knew the piece as the German violinist Pisendel who was world famous at the time had brought back a copy from Paris.
