The first of three concerts today featuring the music of JS Bach and his contemporaries seen in new and transforming guises. Opening with music by Buxtehude displaying the quasi-improvisatory stylus phantasticus, this hour-long concert explores the full emotional spectrum of Bach's highly rhetorical style, providing a chance to hear Bach’s famous piece 'A Musical Offering' with fresh ears.
