Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center: Brandenburg Concertos
(Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))
Few musical works are as loved - and as rarely performed together - as the Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach. The six concertos, each written with its own voice, fit together remarkably well. They have proven their extraordinary power to move, exhilarate, delight and captivate audiences for over 250 years. Famous for their lightness of touch and ability to communicate the different voices in the concertos, the Chamber Music Society's performance of them has become a New York holiday tradition that has been called "Rarified... with a brilliant close" (Chicago Classical Review), and "brimming with life" (The New York Times). Join us for this unique holiday event! more information...
