This program includes J.S. Bach’s Concerto in C minor for Two Harpsichords, BWV 1060, and Overture for Violin and Strings in A minor, BWV 1067a — the presumed original version of the famous Overture in B Minor (BWV 1067) scored for flute and strings — reconstructed by musicologist Werner Breig.
Our program also features the Orchestral Suite No. 3 in E minor by Johann Bernhard Bach (1676–1749), Johann Sebastian’s second cousin, whose musical style has been compared to Telemann’s.
The period-instrument ensemble Les Bostonades has been sharing chamber music with Boston area audiences since its founding in 2005.
The ensemble features Baroque music specialists who have studied and performed all over the world, who collaborate in Boston's vibrant early music scene, bringing spirited and polished performances to their listeners.
The ensemble's performances have been described as 'the most engaging chamber music playing...[a] generous, voluptuous sound...well delineated, [and with] a poignancy of emotion.'
