Laurence Cummings is one of the most exciting and versatile exponents of historical performance, both as a conductor and harpsichord player, and he will direct The English Concert at the Bachfest. This outstanding ensemble, noted for the passion and vibrancy of its playing and a strong desire to connect with its audience, will perform a delightful J S Bach and Handel programme which includes the 4th and 5th Brandenburg Concerti. The fireworks of the latter, with its virtuosic cadenza at the end of the first movement, promises to deliver a captivating performance.
