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. The concerto, performed by another group of musicians, came up on the music box in my car just about 30 minutes ago. The piece is one of my favorites, too.

    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

    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?
