Madison Bach Musicians: Telemann’s Tales: Quixote, Gulilliver, and a Canary
October 5 @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on October 6, 2019 at 2:45pm
MBM will present three of Telemann’s programmatic, or story works, and three purely instrumental selections: Suite for Two Violins, based upon scenes from Gulliver’s Travels (1728); Suite Burlesque for Strings portraying Don Quixote’s love for Dulcinea, his jousting with windmills, and the world-weariness of his faithful servant Sancho Panza; and guest artist bass-baritone Matthew Treviño singing the droll and sweetly amusing cantata about the demise of a favorite canary.
The concert includes non-programmatic works for string band: the dramatic Sonata in F Minor for two violins, two violas, cello and continuo, and the elegant Sinfonia Spirituosa, and Trevor Stephenson will perform some fascinating Fantasy miniatures for solo harpsichord.
