The Amici Ensemble, led by Donald Armstrong, presents a rare chance to hear all of Bach’s legendary Brandenburg Concertos. The opportunity to hear all six concertos in one performance is very rare. Twenty musicians, mostly NZSO players plus other top New Zealand artists, will gather to present this amazing music in a concert packed with abundant colour and variety.

The concertos are in the front rank of the masterpieces of Western music and are Bach’s best-known and most often performed works. Bach brings together the widest possible combination of instruments, with different soloists for each concerto, combining them in daring partnerships with a wide range of moods and structures, and frequently demanding virtuoso performances from the soloists.
