Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos


Bach may have composed the six Brandenburg Concertos to gain employment, but his “musical resume” stands today as one of the great monuments in Baroque orchestral music. Principal Guest Conductor Nicholas Kraemer leads the Music of the Baroque Orchestra in three of the six concertos—the joyful Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 for string orchestra, the maverick Brandenburg No. 5 with its wild harpsichord solo, and the dusky-hued No. 6 featuring violas and viole da gamba.
