Der getreue Music-Meister: Duos by Georg Philipp Telemann
Georg Philipp Telemann is a true music master of the 18th century. His Opus 2 duets are well-known by both amateurs and professionals. This program offers some of Telemann's lesser known and later works from Der getreue Music-Meister (Germany's first music periodical) and also the 1752 print of bolder and more original duo pieces which survived in the Civico Museo Bibliografico Musicale in Bologna. These later "flute" duets have been seriously neglected, given the popularity of his well-loved Opus 2 pieces. We will also perform one of the Sonatas in Canon from Opus 5.
All concerts are free; no tickets or reservations are necessary.
