WorksBrandenburg Concertos nos 1-6, BWV1046-51 (complete)
The Brandenburg Concertos consist of six concerti grossi, in which Bach deploys the instruments from the baroque orchestra in different, often audacious constellations. Against this backdrop, De Keersmaeker sets sixteen dancers originating in different Rosas generations. Following her usual method, and as she did in Rain (after Steve Reich), she approaches the music as if it were a ready-made score for a dance piece, embodying Bach’s polyphonic mastery. The concertos are played live by the baroque ensemble B’Rock, conducted by violinist Amandine Beyer.
‘Like no other, Bach’s music carries within itself movement and dance, managing to combine the greatest abstraction with a concrete, physical and, subsequently, even transcendental dimension.’ – Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker
‘De Keersmaeker has found her perfect musical source’ – The Financial Times
‘...the contagious energy of a fabulous show’ – Le Soir
‘[ATDK] sheds new light on the Brandenburgs’ – The New York Times
‘Magnificent new dance’ – The Observer
