Conductor, harpsichordist, and early music specialist Ton Koopman conducts The Philadelphia Orchestra in this Sunday’s broadcast at 1 pm. It's a Verizon Hall concert from this past March, during which Koopman teams with his wife, harpsichordist Tini Mathot, in a performance of C.P.E. Bach’s Concerto for Two Harpsichords, a boldly experimental work by a composer well-known for his innovation and dynamism.

Virtuosic soloists from The Philadelphia Orchestra will be featured in five sparkling and propulsive works by J.S. Bach this Sunday. The performance is further enhanced by Baroque specialist Nicholas McGegan, who brought a fresh and animated approach to these familiar masterworks when the performances took place at Verizon Hall back in mid-April.

Today, J. S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos are among the most popular pieces from the Baroque era. WRTI’s Susan Lewis explores the mystery in the story of the famous concertos.
