About the Music

Glass  Glassworks: Opening (reworked by Christian Badzura)

Pärt  Fratres (for solo violin, strings, and percussion)

Bach  Keyboard Concerto No. 5

Adams  Shaker Loops (for string orchestra)

This concert celebrates connections between old and new, between today’s musical patterns and the timeless, structured elegance of Johann Sebastian Bach. Rhythm, melody, and pattern remain the building blocks of music, here showcased in intriguing modern, minimalist, and Baroque works filled with lush transparency — and enveloping and involving the listener anew.

In addition to the concert performances, each episode of In Focus includes behind-the-scenes interviews and features about the music and musicmaking.
