The background

Concerto Supergrosso

Rome: a city of unparalleled opportunities. The Bach Society is going resolutely XL and has a surprise in store: the new generation is coming to let us hear what they can do.

Neither expense nor effort was spared in making an impression.“

The descriptions are absolutely mouth-watering. In the sumptuous halls of cardinals and kings, Handel, Corelli and Scarlatti spurred on their giant ensembles. Neither expense nor effort was spared in impressing guests with exuberant music, top-class singers and magical settings.

This season, the Netherlands Bach Society is devoting one programme to more is more. The huge complement of almost fifty musicians is made up partly of students from the conservatoires of Amsterdam and The Hague, especially selected and coached by Shunske Sato. Add to this a trio of delightful soloists and you could easily imagine yourself an honorary guest in a Roman palace.
