The Mission Saint-Charles Choir and Orchestra join forces to pay tribute to the creative genius of Georg Philipp Telemann. The composer, arguably one of the most famous of the late Baroque, is also one of the most prolific, having composed nearly 6,000 works for all types of ensembles, including sacred works with Latin texts for very special occasions.
On the program: instrumental works by Johann Friedrich Fasch, a contemporary of Telemann, as well as psalms for chorus, soloists and orchestra in which Telemann explores French and Galant styles, demonstrating that he was both versatile and forward looking.
