2021 is the 300th anniversary of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti, written for Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, and Adelaide Baroque celebrates this milestone with the 6th Concerto of the set BWV 1051.

We welcome much loved Adelaide soprano Emma Horwood to perform the Cantata Weichet nur, betrübte Schatten. The Orchestral Suite No 3 BWV 1068 and Concerto for two violins were both premiered at Zimmermann’s Coffee House by the renowned Leipzig Collegium Musicum. The works in this program were written mostly during Bach’s time in Leipzig, (known as the city of Music) and we are delighted to perform them here in Adelaide, Australia’s own UNESCO City of Music.
