Margaret Batjer shares highlights of the evening with KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen in our latest podcast, including Jeffrey Kahane performing and conducting the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and principal flute David Shostac who performs Mozart’s “Gran Partita” and the Brandenburg Concerto. The two also discuss what make Baroque music so popular and how it has endured almost 400 years later.
