Alexandros Kapelis is joined by the
Baroque Ensemble of the
The Complete Concertos for Solo Keyboard by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1052-1058)
Very few ensembles specializing in early music can display a level of artistic mastery akin to that of the Berliner Barock Solisten. Comprised of prominent members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the musicians have created a unique approach to performing works of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Their flexibility and homogeneity is virtually unparalleled internationally, having elicited worldwide acclaim from both public and press. The ensemble’s activities are documented on a rich discography with Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, and other leading labels.
Alexandros Kapelis teams up with the Berliner Barock Solisten, recording the complete concertos for solo keyboard and orchestra by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1052-1058). This is the first time that the musicians will record the entire set of these concertos. A tour-de-force for soloist and ensemble alike, the artists have performed all of Bach’s solo keyboard concertos in one evening, giving the audience the rare opportunity to hear these masterpieces in one go.
Following the upcoming release of their recording, the ensemble and Kapelis will embark into a series of worldwide performances, kicking off their tour at Bach's final resting place at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig.
