Description

The Concert

Please join New Holland Consort as we present favorite Baroque selections by composers J.S. Bach and G. P. Telemann in our concert 'Telemann and Bach: Music and Friendship', presented by Act-Belong-Commit.

G.P. Telemann was one of the most prolific composers in the Baroque time period - and, in fact, is still one of the most prolific composers by today's standards. His contemporaries also regarded Telemann as one of the leading German composers. His talent was regularly compared to that of both J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel, whose compositional influences were also, of course, well-regarded. Both Bach and Telemann greatly influenced the development of the musical artform, as well as influenced each other's work.

Interestingly enough, not only were Bach and Telemann close colleagues, they were also fantastic friends. Bach even went as far as to name Telemann the godfather and namesake of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. Thus, their relationship was one of music and friendship!

The concert will consist of inspiring chamber, orchestral and vocal works by these two renowned historical composers. All of the music will be performed on period instruments, using historical temperament, and with historically-informed performance practices.

Ticket Information

The concert will be one hour long and will include engaging snippets and stories about the composers Telemann and Bach, as well as an introduction to the historical instruments. Come and find out what that funny, brightly-painted sarcophagus is all about and why it sounds like it does (hint: that's the harpsichord)!

Tickets also include an opportunity to 'meet and greet' with the musicians post-concert. Have a tea, coffee or hot cocoa and a slice of a healthy baked good and chat with your favourite - whether it be the flautist or one of the strings players! Refreshments are included in the ticket price. Water will also be available free of charge at the event.
