The International Festival’s six-concert survey of J S Bach’s complete keyboard concertos moves from St Cecilia’s Hall to a spectacular conclusion in The Queen’s Hall.

Four of today's most exciting, renowned harpsichordists make a rare appearance together alongside musicians from Scotland’s magnificent Dunedin Consort, in Bach’s remarkable concertos for three and four keyboards – from the virtuosic brilliance of the Concerto in C, BWV 1064 to the resplendent opulence and breathtaking keyboard interplay of the Concerto for four harpsichords, BWV 1065, by way of the spirit, energy and lyricism of Bach’s Italian Concerto in an arrangement for four harpsichords.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
