Bach in Baltimore: Baroque Oktoberfest

Christ Lutheran Church , 701 S. Charles St., Baltimore, MD

Can’t make it to Munich this fall? Don’t worry! Bach in Baltimore opens its 2019-2020 season with a taste of the rich and delicious German Baroque music traditions in our Baroque Oktoberfest concert, featuring Bach’s rousing Cantata 20 that begins with a march fit for a king and showcases a spirited chorus, a trio of oboes, bright brass aria for trumpet, and solos for alto and tenor. It is paired with Telemann’s lively Tafelmusik II: Ouverture Suite in D major, which represents the peak of sixteenth-century courtly table music. It is a perfect way to kick off our season of the Baroque Greatest Hits.
