"Like no other music, Bach’s carries within itself movement and dance." — Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

During her 1980 stay in New York, when Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker was rehearsing her celebrated Violin Phase to the music of Steve Reich, the only other recording playing in the studio was Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos. In those six concerti grossi, Bach deploys the instruments of the baroque orchestra in different, often audacious constellations. Thirty-five years later, the choreographer brings to them the largest forces she has ever worked with: sixteen dancers from different Rosas generations, along with the complete B’Rock baroque ensemble under Amandine Beyer. In her unique The Six Brandenburg Concertos, De Keersmaeker approaches Bach’s music as if it were a ready-made score for a dance piece and Bach’s polyphonic mastery is made flesh in a synthesis of all her choreographic brilliance.
