Banquet of Baroque Saturday, March 14, 2020 7:30 PM | Wilson Center
Serving up music of Baroque masters Handel and Bach with a side order of selections from Italian and French composers.
This Masterworks concert will feature Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 6. Bach's sonic imagination was seemingly limitless, and for this final concerto he chose to limit the work's instrumentation to strings and continuo, meaning that the only non-bowed instrument heard is the harpsichord. Other selections in this concert include Handel's Concerto a Due Cori no. 1 in B-flat and Entrée from Les Boréades by composer Jean-Philippe Rameau.
