“While music is my field and plow, and serves to give me many of my keenest pleasures, I have lately attached myself to a new suitor, namely the love of flowers”. Thus wrote the great German Baroque composer Georg Phillip Telemann in 1742. He even had his friend Handel send him a crate of “the best plants in all England.” This concert explores the flowers from Telemann’s musical garden, including his own Water Music, a work composed for a celebration of the great port of Hamburg, in 1723. Unlike his friend Handel, whose legendary Water Music was performed on the Thames River, Telemann composed a depiction of the ocean, water deities, and sailors. Telemann’s wonderfully inventive Table Music, composed to accompany and elevate courtly banquets, will complete the program.
