Telemann in Paris

Telemann in Paris


Sunday, February 25, 4:00 pm
New Mexico School for the Arts, 500 Montezuma Av., Santa Fe
Admission $30 ($10 for students)  sold on-line only at SeverallFriends.org


We are thrilled to devote much of our program to three of Georg Philipp Telemann’s twelve “Paris” Quartets. Telemann absolutely nailed the virtuosic, sophisticated, and delicious French style; these quartets became so inordinately popular in Paris that he had to travel there to shut down a booming pirating industry. The program will also feature an evocative and lively duo by Joseph Bodin de Boismortier for flute and violin.

Both Telemann and Boismortier were highly successful entrepreneurs, at a time when the exploding bourgeoisie was avidly seeking high-quality music to perform at home. While Boismortier focused exclusively on composing music in the (faintly Italianate) French style, Telemann was a stylistic genius, fascinated by, and master of regional styles, throughout Europe and beyond, including many wonderful and virtuosic folk idioms. Telemann, who traveled frequently to get first-hand exposure to unfamiliar music, commented after a trip to Poland, “…in eight days a man could collect enough musical ideas for his whole life!” You will hear a bit of his wonderful sensitivity to these “bohemian” styles, as he has brilliantly involved them in these wonderful pieces.

Sandra Miller, New York City’s preeminent Baroque flutist, joins Severall Friends’ wonderful local players: Elizabeth Blumenstock, Baroque violin, Mary Springfels, viola da gamba, Katie Rietman, Baroque ‘cello, and Kathleen McIntosh, harpsichord. Don’t miss this concert!
