ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Hear “Bach at his most ravishing” (The Independent) in what promises to be an extraordinary concert by Scotland’s Dunedin Consort. Led by harpsichordist and organist John Butt, a pre-eminent Bach scholar, the ensemble makes its first Washington appearance with an intimate, elegant band of eleven players, revealing the virtuosic instrumental writing of the composer’s cantatas and concerti, often heard in much larger configurations. This is an exceptional group, with performances marked by what The Times calls “the sheer sense of joy.”
