Program Update: Baroque chamber orchestra to perform suites from Telemann’s Tafelmusik

The Yale School of Music will present Musique de Table: festive baroque orchestral suites from Telemann’s Tafelmusik (1733) on Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall. This program celebrates Telemann’s landmark collection of suites and concertos known as “Tafelmusik,” and written for performance by his Hamburg collegium musicum: an ensemble of students much like our own. Performers are members of Robert Mealy’s class on baroque performance practice, with students playing on Yale’s own collection of baroque bows.

The program will include Telemann’s Overture for Trumpet and Oboe in D major; Concerto for Flute, Violin, and Cello in A major; Ouverture for Two Flutes in E minor; and Ouverture for Two Oboes in B-flat.
