BSO: Baroque Favorites
Saturday, May 16, 2020, 8pm
The Music Center
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
In a conductor-less program that puts the musicians of the BSO front and center, this concert explores the mastery of Bach and musical story-telling at its finest. Handel’s popular Water Music captures the audacious mood of George I’s boating parties on the Thames, while Telemann and Purcell depict two classics of literature, Don Quixote and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This is a musical feast of high drama for those who love the colors and sonorities of Baroque music.
