Our New York City Concert Series will held during the months of

The Four Nations Ensemble announces its 2017 series of three concerts in New York City's intimate and acoustically ideal Merkin Hall.

In its 2017 season, Four Nations’ artists explore and harvest the musical fields of Johann Sebastian Bach performing virtuoso and introspective, humorous and tragic, sacred and secular works from cantatas and instrumental collections. The Ensemble will place these masterpieces alongside music by composers who held fascination and offered guidance for Bach. The Ensemble has invited brilliant guest artists Aaron Sheehan, tenor; Joshua Lee, viola da gamba and Josh Cohen, Baroque trumpet.
