Bach and the Masters of the Baroque

Today’s programme on our Main Stream features music from the Baroque era and while it features the music of J S Bach, it also includes many other composers of the period, both well-known and seldom-heard.

Listeners may find it strange to discover that during his lifetime J S Bach was thought somewhat old-fashioned and behind the times, as other composers adopted more decorated rococo styles. Today, of course, it’s a different matter and there is a vast library of recordings of his work available, a selection of which we will hear during the programme.
