× At the hands of Corelli, Vivaldi, Handel, and others, the music of the Baroque era reached new heights of complexity and expressive depth. But by the early eighteenth century, Johann Sebastian Bach had emerged as the supreme artist, who even three centuries later many recognize as history’s greatest composer. The opening disc of Music@Menlo LIVE 2019 brings together a colorful selection of music composed between 1710 and 1720, music that set the stage for Bach’s resplendent First Brandenburg Concerto.
