3-18-17 Music In Maryland Bach Musical Marathon!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

This week we are playing some recordings from the St. Davids Episcopal Church in Baltimore’s Bach Marathon.  The marathon takes place tomorrow at St. David’s and begins at 2 pm.  It’s free and open to the public and contains music by J.S. Bach for all manner of forces and genres.  I had the pleasure of talking to Doug Buchanan about the Marathon earlier in the week.

Meanwhile here is what we played on tonight’s show!

Bach: French Suite No.  4  in E-flat, BWV 815  (2016 marathon)
