Early Music Month 2017 & the European Day of Early Music 2017 – New Comma Baroque’s Somewhere in Time: Telemann’s ‘Lost’ 12 Fantasias for Solo Viol, 1735

Located in 2014 by Thomas Fritzsch, a copy of Telemann’s self-published 1735 fantasias for viola da gamba survived near Hanover at Ledenburg Palace in the collection of Eleonore von Münster (née von Grothaus, 1734-1794). Dedicated to musical subscriber Mr. Pierre Chaunell (1703-1789) and published in a period when the viol was already out of fashion in Europe, Telemann’s unique fantasias encompass a plethora of forms – both old and new, inspired by the Polish and Moravian music of his early career, filled with techniques spanning fugal writing to elements of the rondo and concerto, straddling the High Baroque and the galant. As part of Early Music America‘s Early Music Month 2017and Réseau Européen de Musique Ancienne/ European Early Music Network’s European Day of Early Music 2017, join New Comma Baroque’s Phillip Serna honoring the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death! There’s Bach in the Subways, and now there’s TeleMannia!

Black Tulip

Black Tulip Presents Tulipmania – Music, Art, Politics, and Society in the Dutch Golden Age

Tulipmania looks at the cultural and political events during the peak of Dutch power during the 17th and early 18th centuries. The Dutch protestant north was a bastion of religious tolerance and personal freedom, while the rest of the continent was embroiled in civil wars, and the disastrous 30-Year’s War. The new-found prosperity of this emerging capitalist society encouraged the development of the arts, and provided a large and receptive market for the musical and artistic productions of other countries as well. We’ll play music of native composers as well as foreign composers who were well known is the Low Countries. Tulipmania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed.
