Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall
University of Leeds
Friends & Rivals:
Johann Sebastian Bach &
Georg Philipp Telemann
A fascinating programme marking two anniversaries: Martin Luther's initiation of the Reformation in 1517 and the death of J.S. Bach’s friend and rival Georg Philipp Telemann in 1767.
The programme includes Bach’s Actus Tragicus BWV 106 and Telemann’s Trauer-Actus ‘Ach wie nichtig, ach, wie flüctig’, poignant funeral works featuring recorders and viols, Bach’s violin concerto in G minor BWV 1056 is paired with Telemann’s fine concerto for recorder and
flute and the concert ends with Bach’s mighty Easter cantata ‘Christ lag in Todesbanden’ BWV 4, setting one of Luther’s greatest chorales.
