The program features keyboard works by Georg Muffat. Until recently only the pieces in A-Wm 743 and the printed collection "Aparatus musico-organisticus" were known. Among the restituted manuscripts from the Berlin Singakademie archives a new collection of six suites in Gottlieb Muffat's hand was found, of which at least five are by his father.

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.
