Bach’s Antidote

Inside Music: Bach's Antidote, Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, Movement 3

Movement III of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, knits together the built-in reassurance of fugue and ternary form with Bach’s ultimate optimism.

Host George Marriner Maull will explore with the radio audience how Bach’s choice of solo timbres for this work – flute, violin and harpsichord – as well as the bouncy quality of his fugue subject make for a sunny day for listeners.

INSIDE MUSIC with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is made possible by Glenmede Trust Company, an independent investment and wealth management firm, with 8 locations including offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia. 

Additional sponsorship of Inside Music has been provided by Alfonso and Diana Finocchiaro.
