Marlboro Month: Bach

07/28/11 8:00AM

Something funny happened at the beginning of the Bach performance at the 1999 Marlboro Music Festival. We're not sure exactly what it was, but the results are pretty funny in themselves: while the instruments are tuning up you can hear the audience AND performers all break out into jeers and laughter. It's just one of those special moments at the Festival you'll be able to hear in this morning's live performance of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3.
