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. CMS is proud to once again present the complete Brandenburg Concertos in Bach’s original instrumentation in what has become a Chicago holiday tradition.
