Brandenburg concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach premiered
24 March 1721
The Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051, original title: Six Concerts à plusieurs instruments) are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, in 1721. J.S. Bach composed this famous collection of six concertos (BWV 1046-51) between 1708–1721, although they weren’t known as the Brandenburg Concertos until 150 years later.
They are widely regarded as some of the best orchestral compositions of the Baroque era.
