The FIMA - Festival Internacional de Música do Algarve presents the “Brandenburg Concertos” with the Academy of Ancient Music directed by violinist Bojan Cicic, who will share the stage with the soloists Rachel Brown on flute, and Alastair Ross on harpsichord. The Academy of Ancient Music musical performances respect the original patterns from the baroque and classic periods. The ensemble reaches us from the United Kingdom and brings in its luggage a Bach and Telemann repertoire, composers who represent the late Baroque.
The two Brandenburg Concertos that will be heard today belong to a set of six composed by Bach, while in the court of Calvinist Köthen, at a time when the composer especially devoted himself to the profane and instrumental music (contrary to what was usual in his epoch). From Telemann, one of the great names of the late German baroque, though already associated to the so-called “galant style”, we present the "Concerto for flute in E minor" and the "Burlesque de Don Quixotte".
