BACH Suite No 4 in D, BWV 1069 (20’)
-
MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV – Conductor / Harpsichord

Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev directs a packed programme of beautiful and fun-filled French and German Baroque music. First off, Versailles and the court of Louis XIV, for Jean-Baptiste Lully’s suite from his humorous opera-ballet Le Bourgeois gentilhomme. 
This is followed by the imaginative and sensual music of Rameau’s Les Indes Galantes, then over to Germany as Maxim directs Telemann’s musical depiction of Alster Lake near Hamburg – complete with cannon fire, echoes, birds, frogs and merry-making peasants.
Completing the concert, is JS Bach’s Suite No 4 – albeit dance pieces in the French Baroque style.
