In this, the first of two concerts with director Laurence Cummings, we celebrate the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach's music combines exquisite craftsmanship with innate drama and emotion, and tonight's programme showcases some of his most famous pieces, including two suites (No.3 including the 'Air on a G String') and one of his Brandenburg concertos.
