Konzert for the Kaiser: A Fundraiser for Fine Arts Restoration
The Bach and Beyond Ensemble presents Telemann's Concerto in D Major for 2 Oboe d'Amore, cello, and string orchestra at the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center on November 18, 2012. Artistic Director Scott Will leads the Ensemble in a program that also features treasures of Mozart, Bach and Bruckner and Bibel.
This outstanding afternoon of Germanic works is a benefit concert with a portion of ticket sales dedicated to restoration of the large-scale painting of Kaiser Wilhelm I in the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center collection. The 6' by 9' oil was painted in Prussia c 1870 and framed in the elaborate gilded style of Chicago's premier film houses. The piece has only been viewable to the public since 2009 and is in need of extensive restoration to its impressive frame, crafted by Chicago's German wood carvers at the turn of the last century.
