Programme:
Telemann. “Der getreue Music-Meister” / “The Constant Music Master”

An evening filled with the warmth, intimacy and simplicity of music performed at home.
Telemann wrote “Der getreue Music-Meister” (1728), a cycle consisting of small compositions in seventy different genres, for students or hobbyists. This simple music could be played by anyone, so the fact that it will be performed by Estonia’s best and most experienced baroque gurus who have been on stage for years, carries a particular philosophy – back to basics. Performing such simple compositions presents the musicians with a challenge. Will these masters, who are used to great and complex works, still know how to be convincing and enjoyable in this role.
