Description

Without question, Bach’s music is the most complicated to have ever become required listening. For more than half a century his intricate, erudite works languished in near-complete obscurity while his contemporaries explored other expressive means. And yet, today, pieces like the Brandenburg Concertos are considered among the pillars of classical music. How did this happen? What are we now hearing in Bach that few heard before? What are we now missing? Join Rob Kapilow and Ensemble Caprice as we explore the complex beauty of Bach’s second Brandenburg Concerto.
