The Berkshire Bach Ensemble
Founded by harpsichordist Kenneth Cooper, the Berkshire Bach Ensemble is one of America’s most dynamic chamber ensembles. Comprised of nationally and internationally known virtuosi with a devotion to JS Bach, to chamber music and to profound musical values, the Ensemble has a reputation for elegance of style, versatility and ebullient liveliness. Its repertoire ranges from the Bach solo and duo sonatas to the concerti and vocal works.
The Berkshire Bach Ensemble, under the direction of maestro Kenneth Cooper, has performed the complete Musical Offering, the Orchestral Suites, and is especially celebrated for its New Year’s performances of the six Brandenburg Concerti. The Ensemble also performs lesser known but equally uplifting works of JS Bach, as well as great works of Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
