The 30th Season will conclude with the remaining four Brandenburg Concertos, Nos. 2, 4, 5, and 6, each one featuring the renowned Bach specialists of ABS. The second concerto brings together the disparate solo forces of trumpet, oboe, violin, and recorder in perfect interplay as only Bach could have achieved; the fourth concerto is a legendary showcase for virtuoso violino principale and two recorders; the fifth is supremely elegant in its scoring for violin, the gentle flauto traverso, and cembalo concertato, including the extravagant and even hair-raising cadenza for the harpsichordist; and in the sixth concerto Bach pits the old against the new as a pair of violas da gamba and violone take on their more “modern” counterparts, a pair of violas and violoncello, in repartee that is both rich in sonority and enlightening in its glimpse at a magical moment in history.
