Midtown Concerts presents Brooklyn Baroque


Peace and War: Music from the German Courts

Melanie Williams ~ flute
David Bakamjian ~ cello
Rebecca Pechefsky ~ harpsichord

While eighteenth-century aristocrats often waged wars, music created an oasis of peace. Quantz and C.P.E. Bach worked for Frederick the Great, known both for aggressive militarism and a passion for music. Franz Xaver Richter, by contrast, worked for the less bellicose Elector of Bavaria, while J.S. Bach wrote masterpieces for the music-loving Prince Leopold of Anhalt-Köthen.
