All Bach

For our first concerts since March 2020 and the eruption here of the Covid pandemic, we return to the music of J.S. Bach. Substantial pieces that feature the flute open and close the concert: the B minor Orchestral Suite and the fifth Brandenburg Concerto. These great works are complemented by two arrangements of music from his keyboard masterpieces: Canons from the Goldberg Variations, and a selection of Fugues from the Art of Fugue.
