If it’s New Year’s, the Berkshire Bach Society must be presenting a performance of J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos somewhere. And they are: Their Berkshire Bach Ensemble will perform on New Year’s Eve at the Mahaiwe, and New Year’s Day at the Academy of Music.
Just to mess with your heads, this year’s 20th anniversary concert will feature all six concerti performed in reverse order.
