The early 17th century was a dramatic turning point for music. Come out and join the Williamsport Symphony in celebrating the sounds of the Baroque giant J.S. Bach in a Concerto for Two Violins, BWV1043 in D minor. J.S. Bach is undoubtedly the father of Classical Music. His concerto for two violins is a work of remarkably expressive intensity. Composed more than three hundred years ago is considered one of the jewels of the baroque period and still mesmerize the listeners today for its beauty and elegancy. Brahms composed his monumental Symphony No. 4 in the height of the romantic period. Influenced by the music of Bach finishes this masterwork with a grandiose Passacaglia. The program starts with a light-hearted piece by the young rising star Quinn Mason. His Toast of the Town Overture resembles the Operetta style music very popular in the nineteenth century.
