Not too many concerts to report for next weekend. Thus, more space here for CD art. But I do want to mention the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra's tenth anniversary gala concert, "Rejouissance," Sunday at 3:00, featuring trumpet and woodwind soloists in festive Telemann and Vivaldi concertos and Bach's Fourth Orchestral Suite, John Hsu conducting. And now, on to today's illustrated Midday Music playlist:
