When Johann Sebastian Bach visited margrave Christian Ludwig von Brandenburg in the Berlin Palace, all the ancient deities that shone down at him from the painted ceilings were the ones that were behind his secret scheme for the Brandenburg Concertos. The idea that in this cycle Bach might have been glorifying the virtues of Baroque princes under the guise of mythology is not new. Diana’s hunting horn, Pan’s pipes, Apollo’s violin and the nine muses with their stringed instruments are among the obvious allusions.
