Der getreue Music-Meister: Duos by Georg Philipp Telemann

Deborah Booth Louise Schulman

Georg Philipp Telemann is a true music master of the 18th century. His Opus 2 duets are well-known by both amateurs and professionals. This program offers some of Telemann's lesser known and later works from Der getreue Music-Meister (Germany's first music periodical) and also the 1752 print of bolder and more original duo pieces which survived in the Civico Museo Bibliografico Musicale in Bologna. These later "flute" duets have been seriously neglected, given the popularity of his well-loved Opus 2 pieces. We will also perform one of the Sonatas in Canon from Opus 5.

Deborah Booth and Louise Schulman are well-known NYC performers who have played together in several different ensembles: Ensemble BREVE, Orchestra of St. Luke's, Long Island Baroque Ensemble, Boston Early Music Festival, and others. 

Ms. Booth is an active recorder and flute performer of historical and modern instruments. Performing credits include Handel Haydn Society, Amherst Early Music, Trinity Bach Vespers (NYC), Dorian Baroque Orchestra, and Big Apple Baroque. www.flute-recorder-deborahbooth.com

Ms. Schulman is recognized as a founding member and co-principal viola of Orchestra of St. Luke's, as well as her work on various historical stringed instruments. She has performed and recorded with the Folger Consort, Waverly Consort, Philomel, Ensemble BREVE, Long Island Baroque, Clarion and others.
