Tuesday, November 04, 2014
Every weekday during November, WQXR offers a free, daily download of a noteworthy Bach recording. Today, we present the Presto from the Brandenburg Concerto No. 4
Brandenburg Concerto #4: III. Presto
Chamber Orchestra of Europe - Brandenburg Concertos and Oboe Concertos
Available at Arkivmusic.com
The six beloved Brandenburg Concertos were recorded in the early 1990s by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (no conductor) in a series of fleet and flowing performances. Their instruments are modern but the phrasing is closer to period style. Listen above for the third movement, introduced by host Jeff Spurgeon.
