SYNOPSIS:

Music City Baroque presents a concert of chamber music by Georg Philipp Telemann on Sunday, March 16 at 3:00 p.m. at Woodmont Christian Church, 3601 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville.  The program includes solo works for flute and harpsichord, trio sonatas, a “Paris” Quartet, and the cantata “Wandelt in der Liebe” for alto, flute and continuo, and is free and open to the public.  Telemann (1681-1767) was the most admired musician in Germany in the first half of the 18th century, even eclipsing his contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach in fame during their lifetimes.  Telemann was a prodigiously productive composer and his music is both erudite and direct, and draws from musical styles in vogue in Baroque France, Italy and Germany.

Music City Baroque, now in its tenth season, offers ensemble and chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries played on period instruments, in the style the composers would have heard, with all its original color and passion.  Performers are drawn from members of the Nashville Symphony and faculties of the schools of music at Vanderbilt, MTSU and Belmont.
