Like many German composers of his era, Bach’s engagement with Venetian music was far-reaching and profound. His appropriation of Vivaldi’s compositional principles has received much attention in recent years, but in this concert we focus on less familiar points of contact, including a powerful reimagining of the ‘separated choirs’ tradition that emanated from the architecture and musical practice of St Mark’s Basilica in the early 17th century, an inspired embellishment of a Venetian classic, and a cantata that has all the exuberance of Monteverdi.

Performed on modern instruments.
