Your favorite classics. Bach’s enduring Brandenburg Concertos illuminate the unique colors of Baroque harpsichord, oboes, flutes, and hunting horns. Acclaimed conductor and harpsichordist Richard Egarr showcases Philharmonia’s orchestra of virtuosi.
The Brandenburg Concertos are Bach’s most popular examples of instrumental music. But did you know that the Royal Margrave to whom they were dedicated never heard them performed in his own lifetime? It was only 100 years later that these pieces were rediscovered, and begun to be recognized as the finest orchestral music of the Baroque period.
This is your chance to hear some of the most popular classical music of all time conducted and performed by early music expert, Richard Egarr, with “America’s leading period-instrument ensemble.”
