About the Event

Even though Leipzig did not enjoy the same illustrious reputation of Dresden, Venice, Paris, or Vienna during the Baroque era, it was a burgeoning musical scene that would eventually be recognized over time because of two composers who started and continued a tradition of performing music for the benefit of its townsfolk. These two composers were none other than Georg Philipp Telemann and Johann Sebastian Bach. And this orchestra that performed under their direction would come to be known as Collegium Musicum.

Incidentally, Telemann and Bach were dear friends and fostered a mutual respect for each other's ingenious ability as composers. The Collegium Musicum became a creative outlet for each to musically express the inspiration they drew from the distinctive styles of their European contemporaries, resulting in riveting masterworks that have stood the test of time.

Our following set list for “BACH & TELEMANN: Collegium Musicum” brings this exhilarating fact to life:

Telemann’s Overture Suite in G Major “La Bizarre,” TWV 55:G2

Bach’s Violin Sonata in E Minor, BWV 1023
