Featuring Peter Harvey, baritone

“Peter Harvey’s is one of those voices which makes you imagine that if there were to be a voice of God, this is what it would sound like” – MusicWeb

Long-time Tafelmusik collaborator Peter Harvey joins us for this exploration of the richly passionate music written in Germany in the decades before J.S. Bach. Peter is joined by a chamber ensemble of Tafelmusik musicians in this program designed by Music Director Emerita Jeanne Lamon, whose artistry is featured in a haunting Lament for bass voice, solo violin, and strings by J.S. Bach’s mentor, his cousin, Johann Christoph.

Violinist Julia Wedman, whose debut solo recording of Biber Mystery Sonatas received rave reviews, is also featured in one of Biber’s later sonatas, as is Dominic Teresi in a virtuoso sonata for dulcian, the 17th century ancestor of the bassoon. The concert ends with J.S. Bach’s divinely intimate Cantata 82, “Ich habe genug.”

We’ve put together a playlist of (most) of the music you’ll hear at Intimate German Baroque. It’s a great way to get into the spirit of the concert before you hear it live on stage. Since we're not including a video of Böddecker's Sonata sopra La Monica, you’ll have to come to the concert to hear it!
