Full of life, zest, variety and colour, Bach’s four glorious orchestral suites contain some of the most uplifting of all baroque instrumental music. The King’s Consort bring these dazzling jewels to Snape. Heard back-to-back over the course of a single evening, it’s a reminder of Bach’s brilliance and invention, and of the outstanding line-up of virtuoso instrumentalists in Robert King’s period instrument ensemble.
