Zimmermann's Kaffeehaus (A Summer Sounds Event)
When J. S. Bach took his position in Leipzig's Thomaskirche in the early 1720s, he also made time for secular engagements. As director of the city's Collegium Musicum, a band of players founded by Telemann, Bach wrote numerous works of orchestral and chamber music for their concerts held each week at Zimmermann's Kaffeehaus (a Starbucks of days gone by...). This concert features just such pieces, including a Concerto for Four Violins of Telemann, Bach's "coffee" Cantata, selections from Bach's Art of the Fugue, and numerous chamber pieces by the Bach circle of composers.
Performers will include Antti Tikkanen, Gesa Kordes, Anna Gebert, Minna Pensola, Martin Davids (baroque violin); David Schrader, Carsten Schmidt, Mark Shuldiner (harpsichord); Washington McClain, Aleksander Fester (baroque oboe); Stephanie Corwin (Baroque bassoon); Tony Manzo (baroque bass); Mary Boodell (Baroque flute); Abigail Haynes Lennox (soprano); Derek Chester (tenor); Michael Haag (bass).
