BACH: Brandenburg Concerto No. 2
  
Captured on March 20, 2021

Today, Bach's Brandenburg Concertos are widely regarded as some of the best orchestral compositions of the Baroque era. And yet they were never performed during the composer's lifetime. After Bach gifted the manuscript of the five concertos to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721, it languished on library shelves until it was rediscovered in 1849. Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, performed here, contains one of the most difficult parts in the trumpet repertoire.

This performance will be available for FREE streaming on our YouTube and Facebook channels from April 29 through May 28. Check back in on April 29 for the links.
