Introducing a new weekly feature on WMHT, A Taste of Berkshire Bach. The Berkshire Bach Society celebrates their 30th Anniversary this year and has opened their archives to us. We start our celebration with—what else?—a “Brandenburg” Concerto and an introduction from Kenneth Cooper, harpsichordist and BBS Music Director Emeritus, who established the Bach at New Year’s tradition and who led the ensemble for 27 years. We asked him about building the ensemble and about this Concerto #1, which we’ll hear from a New Year’s Day 2017 concert recorded at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
