The Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach have proven their power to move, delight and captivate audiences for 250 years.
Apollo’s Fire, the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra, will bring these iconic works to Los Alamos 4 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Duane Smith Auditorium. This performance is the second event in the Los Alamos Concert Association’s 2013-14 season.
Award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell will lead her 16-member ensemble in five of the six concertos commissioned in 1719 by Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg.
Concerto No. 2 is a tour de force for the solo trumpet. Concerto No.3 is for strings alone and treats each of the instruments as an equal soloist.
Violin and recorder share the spotlight in the 4th concerto. Harpsichord and flute begin Concerto No. 5 by passing phrases back and forth, but the harpsichord takes center stage in the virtuosic final movement. Two violas exchange solos in Concerto No.6.
Named for the classical God of music and the sun, Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992. Now hailed as one of the world’s most respected period-instrument ensembles, it enjoys sold-out performances at its home base in Cleveland.
