Brandenburg Concerto Number 5

Bach’s 5th Brandenburg Concerto is one of my all-time favourite pieces of music, but I’ve always heard it played by a full orchestra, never a chamber ensemble. Listen to these folks; they do a wonderful job.

  1. Hey! The first and only time I heard the Brandenburg Concertos live was a chamber ensemble performing in a small church in Trafalgar Square in London…I think it was even an Anabaptist church if I remember right

  2. Thank you for posting this. The Brandenburg Concertos as a whole (not just No. 5!) are masterpieces. Though these composers came hundreds of years after Bach, I have had an enjoyable time listening to the French composers Lalo, Saint-Saens, and Ravel. Do you listen to them much?
