Instrumental Array

Three compositions, three undeniable masterpieces. CMS celebrates the virtuosity and genius of the baroque keyboard concerto with J.S. Bach, Hungarian flair and nationalism with Zoltan Kodály’s Duo for violin and cello, and an inventive collaboration of nine winds and strings in Spohr’s Grand Nonetto, the first work ever to be written for this unusual grouping of instruments.
