In his lifetime, Telemann towered in reputation: fought over by employers, idolized by musicians, praised, published and pirated everywhere. When he died at the age of 86, he must have thought his illustrious legacy was assured. 30 years later it was rubble.
The Case for Telemann will confront vestigial anti-Telemann prejudice, explore the fickle nature of fame, and takes a new look at this master-composer’s brilliant music.
