Stravinsky and Bach

Energetic music in which Stravinsky’s and Bach’s sound worlds collide, merge and produce new ‘bubbles’.
On June 4, 1938, the world premiere of ‘Dumbarton Oaks’, a concert by Igor Stravinsky, was held. Or rather: Stravinsky plays with Bach. The Third Brandenburg Concerto is the starting point for this delightfully pointed neo-baroque.
Music by Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) is played on authentic instruments from the early 20th century. The works of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) are played on Baroque instruments.


Only 2 illuminated stands on a dark stage
• Stravinsky – ‘three pieces for clarinet solo’
• Bach – ‘Partita for traverso solo’

The line-up is larger now, the lighting more intense
• Stravinsky – septet (based on dance forms including a passacaglia)
• Bach – ‘Passacaglia’ The arrangement of Bach’s original organ work was specially made for Apollo by Wijnand van Klaveren.

Full line-up, fully illuminated
• Stravinsky – the ‘Dumbarton Oaks’ concerto
• Bach – Brandenburg Concerto III

The Apollo Ensemble plays sublime music from the period from 1600 to 1850, from baroque to early romanticism. They play authentic and historical instruments during performances. The beauty of this music is conveyed to the widest possible audience. Professional musicians performing at the highest level.
