The harpsichord, flute, and violin all share the spotlight in Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, then Tōru Takemitsu’s Archipelago S. showcases the varied textures of the orchestra as the sections are spread across the stage like islands in the sea. Note: Originally announced conductor Matthias Pintscher is unable to travel to Detroit due to quarantine and travel restrictions from the State of New York, related to recent international travel. The DSO thanks Tito Muñoz for stepping in on short notice to conduct this week’s programs.
