About this concert
James Gilchrist’s name is synonymous with the music of JS Bach. He is the standout Bach interpreter of his generation with his performances being described as “superlative” by The Guardian and “breath-taking” by Bachtrack.
As part of our season-long exploration of Bach's music, this programme not only sees James singing some of his best-loved cantatas - including the heart-breaking "Ich habe genug" - but Bach's music has become the starting point for his directorial debut with the AAM. Gilchrist and AAM leader Pavlo Beznosiuk co-direct a programme that features AAM principal flute Rachel Brown performing Bach's glorious second Orchestral Suite and a suite of music by Purcell curated by James and Pavlo.
Priority booking is available for AAM Society members. For more information about supporting the Academy of Ancient Music, please contact Emma Fox at email@example.com, or call 01223 341092.
