The Brandenburg Festival

Neil Mueller (Performer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


A performance of all six Brandenburg Concerti is a major undertaking, with particular weight for the trumpeter playing the fiendishly difficult second Brandenburg. I listed this "Specific Type of Performance" above as a "Major Participant in an Oratorio" because this is the closest - but still inadequate - category to adequately quantify this performance. The performances reflect years of development and months of focused preparation to climb this mountain. Indeed, I would categorize the work as an sort of artistic Olympic event. Before the concert, I was interviewed by Interlochen Public Radio, where I spoke about the piece and playing a couple of short excerpts. The other performers were from MI, CA, MA, and NY.
