Akademie’s “Of Frogs and Men” Brings Sound to Life

For the 2016-2017 season of the Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF), the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin played an energetic show at The New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall. The program performed on March 24, “Of Frogs and Men,” consisted of Baroque music on the theme of nature. These pieces were played delightfully by fifteen players including violins, violas, oboes, a violoncello, a double bass, a bassoon, a lute, a harpsichord, and a recorder, all the while bringing to life the opulence of this style to the stage.
