Order and moderation versus rebellion and sensuality. In between those battling forces lies that elusive ideal we call happiness. For the musicians of the OAE, that balance of pleasures is found above all in Bach, especially the Orchestral Suites, with their blend of French dance, Italian virtuosity and German tradition, which are performed here alongside other celebrated works including the Double Concerto.
