In the view of Albrecht Mayer, principal oboist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, “Johann Sebastian Bach loved the oboe beyond all measure”. Bach’s brilliant Concerto in A major for oboe d’amore would seem to support his presumption.

At this concert, he performs the piece with the Berliner Barock Solisten (Berlin Baroque Soloists), an ensemble composed of members of the Berliner Philharmoniker along with leading representatives of the Early Music scene.

Other items on the evening’s programme are the virtuosic Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and concertante works by other members of the Bach family.
