1720: Bach's Brandenburg Concerto

Dec 13–17, 2019
70 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023, USA

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote the Brandenburg Concertos when he was happy. He was living in Coethen, Germany, where he was employed by the music-loving Prince Leopold.

Can you imagine a world without these six gems? —L.J.
