Three times three at eye level: an interplay of forces, a wonderful balancing act arises from a cambiata, a changing note, in Bach’s probably most famous Brandenburg Concerto. Two times four: on the wings of Goethe’s Faust, Felix Mendelssohn lifts to a flight through the clouds with his Octet, a marvel of the Romantic era. Stravinsky’s Concerto in D: »They’ll see right away that it has three movements. Don’t you want to allow them the pleasure of discovering it themselves?«
