Telemann and Bach

Theresa Salomon

From Telemann’s touching and introspective Fantasie to the expansive Sonata in C major by Bach, this program explores the range and expressive depth that instrumental music in the first decades of the 18th century had reached.

Theresa Salomon received her musical education in her native Germany, the Netherlands and in Austria. Since 1991 she has been a member of the Goldberg Ensemble of Vienna and has toured with the string quartet of the Ensemble in Austria, Germany, France and Italy. She was awarded the Lion's Club "Forderung junger Kunstler" Award and played in the Lion's Club Young Artists Concerts in Weisbaden, Germany. She has performed as a soloist with the Jupiter Symphony, the Metamorphoses Orchestra in New York, the Orchestra of the Chambermusic Society in Vienna and the Wiesbaden Orchestra in Germany.

Ms. Salomon has appeared in many European festivals including the Gulbenkian Festival in Portugal, the Festival Presence in Paris, the Prague Spring Festival and the Takemitsu Memorial Festival. As a performer of contemporary chamber music she has worked with many ensembles including the STX Ensemble Xenakis in the USA, the SEM Ensemble and the Orchestra of SEM Ensemble. She has recorded for Vandenburg and Tzadik Labels.
