Telemann’s 1723 evocation of the sea in all its moods opens this concert from the Summer School Baroque Orchestra. Written for a civic celebration in the trading city of Hamburg, Telemann masterfully depicts the ebb and flow of the sea and portrays many maritime mythological tableaux throughout this suite of dances. JB Bach (rather overshadowed by his illustrious and almost exact contemporary cousin) served the court of Eisenach where he composed music that showed the influence of both French and German tastes. His music is the perfect bridge to that of the 18th century French master, Rameau, whose music from his first opera, written when he was almost 50 years old, we hear next. The concert closes with a return to Telemann and the ebullient ‘Furioso’ finale of perhaps his most famous work, the ‘Tafelmusik’.
