Four of Bach masterworks – on one night!

Mercury performs four of Bach’s six Brandenburg Concertos on period instruments in a concert that is sure to fill every seat!   Some of the most exemplary works of the Baroque era, Bach’s concertos are ingenious and engaging.  Hear them on period-instruments and experience the Brandenburgs as Bach and their first audience would have.
