Claudio Abbado conducts Bach's Brandenburg Concertos Orchestra Mozart

About

Now considered to be among the finest examples of Baroque orchestration, the Brandenburg Concertos were nearly lost forever. Their 1721 dedicatee, Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg, likely did not have sufficient numbers to perform Bach’s remarkably innovative score, which sat unused and forgotten until music theorist Siegfried Dehn rediscovered it in the archives over a century later. How fortunate Dehn’s find was, for without it we may never have heard these marvels of texture and virtuosity, unprecedented in the variety of solo combinations and the originality of ideas.

In this 2007 film, experience all six of the Baroque gems with a world-class chamber orchestra under the leadership of one of the greatest conductors of all time: the inimitable Claudio Abbado and the Orchestra Mozart make this a Brandenburg for the ages, stately and spirited and impeccably rendered.
