Dance-inspired German music, Vivaldi’s gleaming virtuosity, Handel’s hybrid German-Italian style, and more are showcased by one of the preeminent period instrument ensembles, Bach Collegium Japan. Bach’s famous suite is a showpiece for flute and strings, while Vivaldi’s concerto is a classic of its kind. In addition to the instrumental works, there’s a cantata by Conti, much admired by Bach, and a brilliantly virtuosic Italianate motet by Handel that’s noteworthy for its culminating sparkling Alleluia.
