The American Classical Orchestra

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Thomas Crawford, founding music director and conductor of the American Classical Orchestra, and oboe player Marc Schachman discuss the orchestra’s upcoming performance of Bach’s Magnificat and talk about playing on period instruments. On November 27, at 8 PM in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, the orchestra joins longtime collaborators the choirs of Trinity Church, Princeton and Trinity Church, New Haven for a reawakening of the revelatory music of Bach’s multi-movement work for five soloists, choir, and orchestra: Magnificat.

That was not a very interesting musical excerpt to start off this segment! Why not play the opening of Bach's Magnificat? That's absolutely thrilling, and would certainly spark some interest in the concert and the subject!
