Beloved by the Bach family and musicians across Europe, Georg Phillip Telemann’s diverse and creative music continues to grow in reputation and appreciation. Honoring the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death, the program features two contrasting quartets, which he himself performed in Paris in 1737. Chamber masterworks by his friend J.S. Bach and his godson C.P.E. Bach complete the program, along with two French trios featuring the harpsichord and viola da gamba. 

Guest Artists: Jaap ter Linden, principal cello, Musica Antiqua Köln, Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra; Kathie Stewart, founding member and principal flute of Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s Baroque Orchestra; University of Michigan faculty members Aaron Berofsky, violin; and Joseph Gascho, harpsichord.
