The music of Johann Sebastian Bach is pure magic — there is no music more
timeless, moving and vibrant! Bach lived from 1685 to 1750, but over two and a half
centuries later his music remains utterly fresh, stirring and life-affirming, and his
legacy echoes throughout history in every piece of music written since. This program
celebrates the music of Bach including his Brandenburg Concerto No. 3
, Concerto for Oboe and Violin and Orchestral Suite No. 4. It also features composers and music Bach inspired, such as Igor Stravinsky’s “Dumbarton Oaks” Concerto and Gustav
Mahler’s gorgeous orchestration of Bach’s most famous piece, Air on a G String
. All tickets are only $25 each and include a glass of wine or champagne after the concert when you can mingle with Symphony musicians in the Kauffman Center’s Brandmeyer Great Hall lobby. Sponsored by BMO Private Bank.
