Concerto Köln: Bach and the Italians

Concerto Koln

When we think of J.S. Bach, we imagine a sui generis creative force. However, Bach was hugely influenced by new music coming out of Italy. The concerto, which originated in Italy as a form of musical argument, became one of Bach’s “go-to” musical genres, and the work of pan-national composers such as the Munich-based Evaristo Felice dall’Abaco and Amsterdam-based Pietro Antonio Locatelli would have had resonance throughout Bach’s world. In this rare New York performance, Concerto Köln, praised by the New York Times as “finely polished,” celebrates the international interplay in Bach’s lifetime.
