Freiburg Baroque Performs All of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos

imageHave a favorite Brandenburg Concerto? There’s a good chance that the the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra will perform them at Alice Tully Hall on February 5.

The Gramophone Award–winning Freiburg Baroque Orchestra returns to Lincoln Center to perform Bach’s complete Brandenburg Concertos, perhaps the finest compositions of the Baroque era. True to 18th-century performance practice, the conductorless ensemble employs authentic period instruments to construct the six concertos’ daring scoring, unveiling trumpet flourishes, robust woodwinds, and soaring solo violin along the way.
