Janet Coleman of Cat Radio Café (WBAI) interviewed Frederick Renz about this week’s “Bach Brotherhood” concert:

Did you know...

The baroque transverse flute, a featured instrument on the Bach Brotherhood program, is a precursor of the modern flute.

It is held the same way, but has a body of wood rather than metal, and only one or two keys, with finger holes for changing the pitch. This most evocative wind instrument, with its warm, woody tone, is a particular favorite of Frederick Renz.

J S Bach You’re familiar with Johann Sebastian Bach and Georg Friedrich Händel, and possibly Georg Philipp Telemann, too. But how many times have Johann Friedrich Fasch or Christoph Graupner come your way? They were as popular in their time as the others, perhaps even more so. After “Bach Brotherhood,” you may find yourself becoming a Graupner Groupie or a Friend of Fasch. This program of ouvertures, concerti grossi, and sinfonias by five German masters who flourished in the same fertile time period is an invitation to reconsider the judgment of history.
