Please join us for a concert of German Baroque masters. Brahms once said of his Tragic and Academic Festival Overtures that "one laughs while the other cries." In the intimate setting of Christ & St. Stephen's Church, this concert is build on that premise. Telemann's rarely performed Overture Burlesque traces the characters of the Commedia dell'Arte with wit and charm. Bach's E Major Violin Concerto shares its exuberance, coupled with a poignant, slow second movement. The second half of the program opens in the form Bach is perhaps best known for: The Passion. This Telemann passion overture weaves and immerses in the drama of the Crucifixion. Closing the program is Bach's Cantata "Ich habe genug" (I have enough). This was one of Bach's favorites of his myriad of cantatas, as he saw fit to perform it numerous times, altering the scoring to fit the forces at hand.
