Sounds of Spring

Friday, April 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

Celebrate the arrival of spring with a selection of music for flute and harpsichord by Bach and his contemporary, Georg Philipp Telemann.


The pairing of the two instruments in these compositions, sometimes graceful and sometimes dazzling, charm and delight to this day.

Georg Philipp Telemann
Fantasia in E major
Johann Sebastian Bach
Toccata in F-sharp minor, BWV 910
Partita in A minor, BWV 1013
Capriccio sopra la lontananza del suo fratello dilettissimo, BWV 922
Sonata for Harpsichord and Flute in B minor, BWV 1067

Colin St-Martin, flute
Leon Schelhase, harpsichord

Running Time: approximately 60 minutes, no intermission
