Bach’s apartment in Leipzig was a beehive of activity with the entire family busy with the preparation of musical scores and parts and frequent musical visitors passing through. When the day’s work was done, they would have had incredible opportunities for music making. This program, featuring the Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 alongside other works by Bach, Telemann, and Stölzel, imagines one such ephemeral evening of friends and family happily playing together. The Consort’s principal cellist, John Moran, directs.
