Bach dedicated his collection of six instrumental concertos to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg, who " took some pleasure in the little talents which Heaven has given me for Music, and.... deigned to honour me with the command to send Your Highness some pieces of my Composition." Now considered to be among the finest Baroque compositions, they were only rediscovered in 1849. Join Chatham Baroque and Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society in their very first collaboration as they realize the splendor of these beloved masterworks, numbers 2, 4, 5 and 6.

With guests: Stephen Schultz, baroque flute; Josh Cohen, baroque trumpet; Debra Nagy, oboe, recorder; Aik Shin Tan, recorder; Adam Pearl, harpsichord; Allison Edberg, Annie Loud, Leslie Nero, and Dawn Posey, baroque violin; Kristen Linfante, baroque viola; Shelley Taylor, baroque cello; John Romney, viola da gamba; and John Moore, double bass and violone
