Closing Night: The Brandenburg Concertos
Thursday, August 07, 2014
Festival Passport available
How better to conclude our 20th anniversary celebration than with the most famous concerti of the Baroque? This ground-breaking interpretation by Ensemble Caprice intersperses Shostakovich’s Op. 87 preludes, which were deeply influenced by Bach but hold to their own musical language. Travel from 18th century Germany to 20th century Russia and witness the Baroque master communicating with his modern counterpart. Fascinating!
