Shout for joy in every land! No composer knew how to celebrate quite like Johann Sebastian Bach – and no composer had a more direct hotline to the human spirit.

The ECO performs three of his Brandenburg Concertos – great sunbursts of melody, energy and imagination – before soprano soloist and trumpet take centre stage in the virtuosic ‘Jauchzet Gott’, one of the most joyous of his cantatas.

Bach’s masterpieces are paired with Arvo Pärt’s celebrated Fratres: timeless music that converses across the centuries.

Duration: approx. 1 hour 45 mins (incl. interval)
