J.S. BACH - BRANDENBURG CONCERTOS
Johann Sebastian Bach's "Brandenburg Concertos" is a collection of six instrumental works that demonstrate the composer's mastery of the baroque concerto grosso form. Each concerto features a different combination of instruments, showcasing Bach's skill in writing for various instrumental timbres and textures. The concertos were likely composed in 1721 and dedicated to the Margrave of Brandenburg. They were not widely performed until the mid-19th century when they were rediscovered and championed by musicians such as Felix Mendelssohn. Today, the "Brandenburg Concertos" are regarded as some of the greatest works of the baroque era and continue to be popular in the classical music repertoire.
