Brandenburg Concertos

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

CMS’s annual performances of Bach’s “Six Concertos for Various Instruments” have become an essential component of the holiday season for listeners of all ages and musical experience. Perhaps no other secular music unfailingly provides such spiritual fulfilment for music lovers of all faiths and beliefs, inspiring strength at year’s end and a vision of the brightest future. Bach’s addictive melodic ideas, his consummate contrapuntal technique, and instrumental ingenuity combine in perfect harmony for works that have gained true musical immortality.
