WSO Café Concert: Telemann’s Musical Pictures
Enjoy your morning coffee onstage with music and the WSO!
Telemann was likely the most prolific composer of his time. He and Johann Sebastian Bach were contemporaries and friends. In fact, Telemann was the godfather to one of Bach’s many children! The Alster Echo refers to a lake outside of Hamburg where Telemann lived and worked. This piece is a great early example of programmatic music that will paint a picture lakeside for all to enjoy. Originally written for keyboard, Bach’s Musical Offering is an example of genius at work. This particular work combines six independent voices into one cohesive whole.
Ticket includes complimentary coffee & tea.
This concert is 60 minutes. No intermission.
