The Armadillo String Quartet plays P.D.Q. Bach

If you fall into a certain age range and were fortunate enough to have musical education growing up, you undoubtedly had a music teacher who thought P.D.Q. Bach was just the cat’s pajamas.

The first, for longtime Altadena resident […]

Pasadena Pro Musica: Baroque Advent Cantatas

Pasadena Pro Musica: Baroque Advent Cantatas

Christmas seems to bring out the Baroque in Pasadena Pro Musica, a chorus and orchestra committed to the performance of “distinguished yet less frequently-performed masterpieces.” Last year’s Christmas concert featured two composers we’d never heard of. This year’s show—a program of four sacred Advent cantatas—has only one name new to us: Dietrich Buxtehude, whose Kommst […]
