    In Telemann’s 250th anniversary year, we celebrate this charismatic and well-travelled composer who made a life’s work from publishing and transmitting music for the ‘pleasure of the people’. Inspired by Telemann’s own entertaining autobiography, we re-create the vibrant musical scene of his day, exploring his lively friendships with both Handel and the Bach family and the rich cultural mix of music they shared. French suites, Italian sonatas, and a helping of music for the theatre.Passacaglia trio beneath tree
