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.
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.
