If 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.)
