PROGRAMME

Concert: Inspiration (in Weimar)
This program demonstrates the power of collaboration and the inspiration one can get from appreciating those around us.  Bach is the central figure in this program and part of what made him such an amazing composer was that he always looked to his colleagues for guidance throughout his career as a composer.  When JS Bach was working in Weimar, he had the opportunity to meet several prominent composers like Telemann and Pisendal.  We don’t tend to think of the influence that all of the great baroque composers had on one another but with this program, we shine a light on the beauty of collaboration and what can come from admiring and learning from ones colleagues.   Bach’s son Carl Phlllip was also born during his time in Weimar and the inclusion of his violin sonata shows the beginning of a new change and era.
Georg Phillip Telemann Sonata No. 2 in D Major – 10 minutes

Bach Sonata No. 2 in A Major sonata for violin and harpsichord – 17 minutes

Pisendal Sonata in C minor – 14 minutes

CPE Bach sonata in B minor – 15 minutes
