Resident at the National Concert Hall, the Irish Baroque Orchestra, joins forces with the distinguished violinist Rachel Podger for a feast of double and triple concerti by JS Bach including a favourite with audiences around the world, his wonderfully expressive “Double”.

Gramophone winner Rachel Podgers’ recordings and performances of J.S. Bach have long set the benchmark, and her affinity with the composer has led to her acknowledgement as a leading interpreter of his glorious music. Described as “the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin” (The Times), this special collaboration with Ireland's flagship period music ensemble is a Baroque and Bach must!
