About

Towards the end of its 40th anniversary year, the Academy of Ancient Music, with its musical director Richard Egarr, releases a significant new recording of J S Bach’s four Orchestral Suites BWV1066-69.

This new recording was made at low pitch (A=392) along with a reduced orchestra - “Using one player per part creates a wonderful chamber music feel and allows the flexibility that is essential in Bach’s music.” (Richard Egarr).

Further content available online includes an introductory film about the recording as well as session photographs.

This release – the third on AAM Records – follows ‘Birth of the symphony: Handel to Haydn’, which was named BBC Radio 3's Disc of the Week and widely acclaimed, and J S Bach’s ‘St John Passion’, which received a 2014 Gramophone Award nomination in the vocal category.
