Turning Points is the Kings Place series where you get to explore the hidden secrets of the great composers in history. Discover things about the music you'd never learn on Wikipedia at our pre-concert events. Find out what it's like to play Bach and Handel by asking the musicians. And hear your favourite moment again by voting for the encore.

This concert explores the virtuosic keyboard music of Bach and Handel - two great German composers who in their day enjoyed unrivalled reputations as master organ players. Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 is Bach at his most exuberant, bringing together impish flute and a mighty harpsichord solo. Meanwhile, with his Organ Concertos, Handel essentially invented a new form combining chamber organ and the instruments of the Baroque orchestra. Hear them performed by the expert period instrument players of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
