Afternoon Classics - Thursday, January 14, 2010

A little more Brahms and then off to explore all that wonderful music out there. But first a new composer - Johann Heinichen, (1683 - 1729) who, as Bach did, set his eyes on being Kapellmeister for the City of Dresden. He got there and practiced law as well:

Concerto in F, Seibel 234, of Johann David Heinichen. Reinhard Goebel leading the Musica Antigua Köln.
Piano Quartet No 1 in G minor, Op. 24 of Johannes Brahms - Xiayin Wang & the Amity Players performing.
