Bach Brandenburg Concertos

A year ago last April we performed Bach’s Brandenburg No. 3 in G for 10 string parts and keyboard; this year, on 28 April, we are presenting Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D for flute, violin and harpsichord. This piece is well known for its extended harpsichord cadenza in the first movement and we are delighted to have Rosemary Robinson to perform this. A concert not to be missed: St. Peter’s Church, Witherly, Leicestershire.
