Absolutely Gorgeous Bach

 Dear Flute-lovers,

 All J.S. Bach lovers, get ready to be stunned once again!!

This may be not strictly about flute playing, but boy howdy is this not one of the most riveting performances of Brandenberg 2 I've heard in a long time.

Feast your ears!!

The Netherlands Bach Society performs Brandenberg Concerto no. 2 (video

And two short documentaries as well:

1. The musicians speak about experiencing this performance of Bach (video

2. Mark Geelen, trumpet player of the Netherlands Bach Society, builds his own instruments and explains the differences between the various sorts of trumpets including the addition of finger holes and why.(video

Thankyou to my colleague for emailing me these short films from The Netherlands Bach Society's website. Fabulouso!  Enjoy everyone!

Best, Jen
