Brandenburg Duets LIVE from WRTI with Debra Lew Harder

Wednesday, August 15 at 12:10 p.m., Eleonor Bindman joins WRTI Philadelphia host Debra Lew Harder for an interview and performance of the Brandenburg Duets!

The Brandenburg DuetsIf you love the music of J.S. Bach, tune in on Wednesday, August 15 at 12:10 p.m. to listen to his Brandenburg Concertos in a way you’ve never heard before. Pianist Eleonor Bindman, praised by The New York Times for her “impressive clarity of purpose and a full grasp of the music’s spirit,” performs selections from her impressive piano 4-hand arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos with host Debra Lew Harder.

“Playing Bach’s music is deeply gratifying, and twice as joyful when the experience can be shared with a partner.” That belief led Eleonor to undertake the massive project of transcribing the Brandenburg Concertos for piano duet (4-hands.)
