Music of Telemann, Graupner, and Bach
(Shaughn Dowd, flute, and Roger Cline, viola da gamba)
We are turning the clock back 300 years to 1722, the year in which Johann Kuhnau, the famous cantor of St. Thomas’ church in Leipzig, died, leaving the position vacant. Later that year, invitations were extended to leading musicians throughout Germany to apply for the job. On November 3rd, we’ll dig into some of the chamber music of the two top candidates for the position, Georg Philipp Telemann and Christoph Graupner. Both had strong musical ties to the city of Leipzig having studied at the university there. We’ll also feature some music from the third candidate – one Johann Sebastian Bach – who ultimately took the job after the others withdrew their applications.
