Season 38 debuts with a sampling of the glorious instrumental music of J.S. Bach. Among Bach’s favorite instruments were the violin, oboe, and keyboard, and all three—in both solo and double works—have pride of place in this program: the oboe in the achingly beautiful Adagio from the Easter Oratorio; the violin in one of Bach’s two solo violin concertos; oboe and violin together in a gorgeous double concerto; and the piano in not one but two keyboard works performed by Maestro Radu on the magnificent Bosendorfer grand piano. In addition are two works for orchestra, the stately “Air on the G String” from Orchestral Suite No. 3, and the Capriccio from Orchestral Suite No. 5. As is customary, Maestro will present his engaging “live notes.”

Running time: 90 minutes – no intermission
