Let the baroque orchestra and professional choristers of the Pacific Bach Project take you on a guided tour of the whirlwind events of those first fifty days, with glorious music from the Kantatenwerk as well as the ever popular "Pentecost" Brandenburg Concerto no. 3. Vibrant period instruments and insightfulcommentary help bring Bach's music to life in a fresh and exciting way for everyone.
