JS Bach’s Double Violin Concerto is the glowing centrepiece of a Bach family reunion that celebrates this greatest of all musical dynasties.

It is justly one of Bach’s most beloved works. It has a Largo of heart-stopping beauty in which the two soloists weave around one another rapturously. The chance to hear Richard Tognetti and Principal Violin Helena Rathbone perform this timeless masterpiece is a gift beyond price.

This reunion with JS’s forebears and children explores the vast span of genius comprised in one family, from ravishing arias to intricate orchestral works. The program closes with his famous son, Carl Philipp Emanuel, as our Principal Cello Timo-Veikko Valve performs his virtuosic and vivid Cello Concerto in A major. This is an unmissable concert that reveals why many believe JS Bach to be the greatest, and most enduring, composer of all time.
