For over three decades, Concerto Italiano and Rinaldo Alessandrini have been exploring the works of Bach. In this new album, the ensemble interprets the complete Overtures of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as those of his well-respected contemporaries and second cousins, Johann Bernhard and Johann Ludwig Bach. Alessandrini has once again put Bach’s music under the microscope to identify the most authentic details of style and orchestration. The result is a subtle balance between Bach’s intricate contrapuntal writing and the spontaneity of his dances, with their French and Italian influences.
