This week, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents an all-Baroque evening, featuring works by Bach and Purcell Monday at 10 pm. Elliott Forrest hosts the program, which begins with Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.
The Canadian soprano Dominque Labelle joins musicians from CMS for the rest of the episode. Together they perform three songs by Henry Purcell, before returning to Bach with his cantata, Non sa che sia dolore. Co-artistic director David Finckel, who performs in the Brandenburg Concerto earlier in the program, provides additional commentary.
