Jordi Savall

On The Bach Hour, when a king throws a vexing musical challenge at the composer, it sparks a dazzling response in "The Musical Offering," and an equally dazzling interpretation by Jordi Savall and The Concert of Nations.

On the program:

Adagio, from Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C, BWV 564 (arr. Stokowski) - Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, José Serebrier, conductor

Cantata BWV 157 Ich lasse dich nicht, du segnest mich denn (translation) - James Gilchrist, tenor; Klaus Mertens, bass; Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir, Ton Koopman, conductor

selections from The Musical Offering, BWV 1079 - Les Concert des Nations, Jordi Savall, director
