Johann Sebastian BACH - Brandenburg Concerto No. 1
Courtney Lewis, conductor
Johann Sebastian Bach didn’t invent the concerto grosso, a genre with musical conversation between a small group of instruments and the full orchestra, but he probably wrote the best six in history with his Brandenburg Concertos. Stravinsky modeled his Dumbarton Oaks after Bach’s concertos, named for the historic estate in Washington, D.C. and filled with Stravinsky’s own flavor of Americana. Alberto Ginastera’s Concert Variations weave the music of Argentina into this program through a set of short solos for nearly every instrument in the orchestra. This concert is part of the Florida Blue Classical Series.
