Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 5

10/26/12 9:00AM By Walter Parker

We generally associate conductor Claudio Abbado with the great symphonies of Beethoven, Brahms and Mahler; so you may be surprised at the light, idiomatic touch he demonstrates in the 5th Brandenburg Concerto of Bach, with his hand-picked Orchestra Mozart.
