ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The New Mexico Philharmonic will open the season with a pair of concerts swirling with the music of Bach and Tchaikovksy.
The orchestra’s afternoon classics series begins on Sunday, Sept. 29, at the Simms Center for Performing Arts. “Brandenburg to Holberg” will feature Bach’s joyful Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, his Keyboard Concerto in G minor and the famous Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.
“If they don’t recognize the name, they’ll recognize the sound, music director Roberto Minczuk said. “Bach is one of those composers who wrote so well for all instruments.”
Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival artist Kathleen McIntosh will perform on the harpsichord.
