J.S. Bach: Keyboard Concerto in A Major

Ruth Reinhardt’s Nashville debut features two piano concertos composed centuries apart. At one end of the spectrum is Bach’s 1730s Keyboard Concerto in A Major, at the other is Rounds by Jesse Montgomery. Written in 2022 in close collaboration with Awadagin Pratt, The Boston Globe praised Rounds for its “narrative flair and structural clarity.” Bookending the concert are Bacewicz’s contemplative Partita for Orchestra and one of the most beloved works in the repertoire, Brahms’ First Symphony.
