Bach “Brandenburgs plus” for New Year’s set for Great Barrington, Troy and Northampton [Berkshire on Stage]

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

The Berkshire Bach Society represents the finest Bach in the Berkshires and boasts one of the greatest ensembles in the country, The Berkshire Bach Ensemble, led by the world-renowned harpsichordist Kenneth Cooper.

This year’s Bach at New Year’s event features nineteen world-class virtuosi in a special concert called Brandenburgs PLUS. On the program will be a delicious Concerto for two horns, two oboes and solo violin by the irrepressible Antonio Vivaldi, the ever-popular Bach Double Concerto for Violin and Oboe in a new reconstruction by Dr. Cooper allowing more of Bach’s original music to be heard than ever before, and the devilish Harpsichord Concerto No. 15 in D minor by Handel (stolen largely from Telemann) with a special cadenza by harpsichordist Kenneth Cooper.
