Town Hall Seattle
This concert continues the theme introduced in an earlier concert of the musical world of Johann Georg Pisendel (1687-1755) and
also follows on our recent project of six Brandenburg concertos. Director of the court orchestra in Dresden for many and a legendary
violinist, Pisendel amassed a library of music with a truly international character. In this program we step away from his orchestral
works to explore his music for smaller forces, featuring our principal players with concertos for violins, viola d’amore, oboe, oboe
d’amore, bassoon, horns, and harpsichord with works by Pisendel, Telemann, Brescianello, Cattaneo, and Böhm.
