British harpsichordist and conductor Richard Egarr is one of early music’s most flamboyant, engaging figures, bringing a sense of joy and discovery to all that he performs. He leads a hand-picked ensemble of outstanding period musicians from across Europe and beyond, to perform one of Baroque music’s most iconic creations – and one of its most unashamedly entertaining.

JS Bach wrote his six Brandenburg Concertos to show off his compositional prowess to a prospective employer, and the result is some of his most extrovert, exciting music. Each brief concerto creates its own distinctive character and sound world, each with its own individual soloists.

Join Egarr and his specially assembled ensemble to bring the 2022 Queen’s Hall concerts to a rousing, joyful conclusion.

Supported by Mr Hedley G Wright
