Music from the court of Frederick the Great, Jan. 28-29‏

My friend, Matthew Hall, sends word of more performances by Musical Offering.  Details are below.  I hope that local Boston area folks can make it.


Frederick’s Court
In October Musical Offering explored coffeehouse culture in 1730s Leipzig.  We now jump ahead a few decades to the palace of Sanssouci in the mid- to late-eighteenth century — the seat of Frederick the Great of Prussia.  In these concerts we present a picture of musical life at the court of the flute-playing king.  Works of C.P.E. Bach (the king’s personal accompanist) and Quantz (his flute teacher), as well as Graun, Janitsch, and Hasse.
