Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
For a first foray into the world of Baroque music, you can do no better than Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. Written between 1708-1721 for the Margrave of Brandenburg, Bach composed them in the Italian concerto grosso style. They weren't known as the 'Brandenburg' Concertos until 150 years later. ‘J.S. Bach is a musical giant by any stretch of the imagination,’ says Katherine. ‘He was an incredible composer, a skilled organist, a violinist, a harpsichordist – you name it, he could do it. He even found time to father some 20 children, many of whom themselves went on to be significant composers and performers‘.
