Brandenburgatopia - Afternoons This Week
Among the many delights that Barney Sherman has scheduled this week is a new recording of the Brandenburg Concertos that will make you fall in love with them yet again. We all thought we knew how these concertos sound - but these performances glow with warm, rich timbres we haven't yet heard from other period-instrument (or modern-instrument) groups. We all have a sense for how they move, but these have a natural interplay among the musicians and a liveliness that comes from within the music (as opposed to velocity imposed from without). Tune in this week to hear them for yourself!
