Bach’s Orchestral Suites: Academy Of Ancient Music
"Richard Egarr and his musicians now turn their attention to another pinnacle of JS Bach's instrumental music. The Orchestral Suites are a series of grand and graceful dances, paying homage to the French baroque style, as championed by the ballet-obsessed King Louis XIV. Written during Bach's years in Leipzig, where he had a wider range of instruments at his disposal than ever before, the Suites revel in new sonorous possibilities and employ varied combinations of wind, brass, stringed instruments and timpani."

Founded in 1973, The AAM was a pioneer in historically-informed Baroque performance. Today, they perform music from Monteverdi and Mendelssohn to the modern day, with commissions from composers such as John Woolrich and Sir John Tavener.
They are led by violinist and director Bojan Cicic.
