J.S. Bach – Brandenburg Concerto No. 5
Raaf: “For our 30th anniversary, we treated ourselves and our audiences to a selection of different soloists. One of them was pianist Ivo Janssen, famous for his recordings of all(!) of Bach’s keyboard works. Oliver made an arrangement of Bach’s 5th Brandenburg Concerto. Here you hear a movement from a collection of six concertos that were a present for the Margrave of Brandenburg, who became befriended with the composer. It is now believed that it was intended to make the Margrave hire Bach, who was longing for some challenging new employment.”
