The Royal College of Music Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir present a concert celebrating two masters of the baroque – J.S. Bach and his favourite and most successful son C.P.E. Bach, in a programme of vocal and instrumental music.

The concert opens with Bach’s first Brandenburg Concerto, the largest and most dramatic of the six, and ends with his bright and joyous Ascension Oratorio, showcasing the RCM baroque trumpets and wind players. In addition, the Chamber Choir perform one of Bach’s most ambitious motets, and the orchestra tackle a symphony by the great master’s son that is full of grace and excitement.
