1. Telemann and
Friends : Classical Music Concert at the Flavel
Be introduced to a man with ‘A’ list
friends! Sat 6th Oct 7.30pm. ‘Telemann and Friends’ will
be an intimate chamber music concert exploring the music of the
great German composer and some of his contemporaries. Works by
this prolific composer reflects this 18th century age of
elegance and are known as being most accessible, consequently a
performance on period instruments by Mary Pells viola da gamba,
Rachel Latham flute and Martin Knizia harpsichord promises to be
a very special experience.
Georg Phillpp Telemann is one of the luminaries of early 18th
century music. Defying family pressure this young self-taught
musician continued his musical studies whilst continuing the
formal education imposed by his family. But genius will out and
eventually works written by this young composer became more and
more popular, leading to Telemann being offered increasingly
prestigious roles in the leading music cities within his native
Germany. Along the way he counted Handel and J. S. Bach among
his great friends, the latter even naming one of his sons, Carl
Phillip Emanuel Bach, after Telemann. who subsequently became
his godfather. Telemann was also acclaimed as the founder of the
Collegium Musicum which met in the garden of a Leipzig Coffee
House and provided a platform for young performers.
The programme on Saturday 6th October at 7.30pm includes works
by the man himself and also CPE Bach, J S Bach and Michel Blavet
. These “A” List musicians regularly perform similar programmes
in London to great acclaim, offering an informed insight into
this musical era. Music lovers are recommended to book tickets
for this performance (£16 – Concessions £15 under 18s £5) at the
Flavel Box Office on 01803 839530 or online by

Flavel Arts Café will also be offering their fantastic pre-show
suppers prior to this concert .
