kein Brandenburg für alte Männer!

As I had to make a day round-trip drive to Luxembourg last week, I grabbed a couple baroque CD boxes, including the one above with the complete Brandenburg concertos, that I had not opened for a long while. In such a long while that the foam protection had started to disintegrate, as I found when I opened the case! Anyway, I managed to clean the stuff away well enough to listen to the CDs (while staying on the mostly deserted road), which reminded me of a concert at the 92Y in New York City, 1988, where the orchestra (I cannot remember which chamber music group was playing) played the entire series. Listening to these pieces was most pleasant, except for the harpsichord parts in the 5th concerto, as I realised I could no longer hear clearly enough the harpsichord against the noise from the car…
