PROGRAM

Jacques Ogg, harpsichord; Wilbert Hazelzet, flute

Tasty fare: Tafelmusik originally meant "music composed for a banquet," and this week we'll sample a feast of music—including some of Georg Phillipp Telemann's own Tafelmusik—with flutist Wilbert Hazelzet and harpsichordist Jacques Ogg. This remarkable Dutch duo brings a lively sensibility to its chosen repertoire, adding gusto or delicacy as required. They'll also bring us lovely works by J.S. Bach and his son C.P.E. Bach.

Shock of the Old

Attempts at historical accuracy can at times resemble the party game "telephone": one person whispers a simple phrase into another’s ear, and so on—ear to lips to ear around a circle of friends—until by degrees it mutates into something far more humorous or risqué.
