Academy of Ancient Music

Zankel Hall
In his four orchestral suites, Bach revealed the expressive potential of the Baroque orchestra and created the finest purely instrumental music of his day. It’s music that is festive (the First Suite’s exuberant bourrées), elegant (the stately menuets of the Fourth Suite), tender (the famous Air from the Third Suite), and virtuosic (the Second Suite’s Badinerie). The Academy of Ancient Music, lauded by The Times (London) for its “spunky, beautifully polished performances,” is led by director Richard Egarr.
