If Johann Sebastian Bach had only left the world his six Brandenburg Concertos, he would still reside in the pantheon of the great composers. With their stunning variety of novel instrumentations, their unforgettable tunes, and their irresistible energy, the Brandenburgs easily serve as a definition of what good music should be. This cycle has become so essential for New York listeners that CMS is proud to once again offer the Brandenburgs in three performances, in the incomparable acoustics of Alice Tully Hall.
