Emanuel Ensemble presents

"Totally Telemann!"

Callaway Auditorium, University of Western Australia

The Emanuel Ensemble was formed in 1988 to mark the bicentenary of the death of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. For almost thirty years they have been delighting Perth audiences with their own unique brand of friendly enjoyable music making with a strong focus on the Bach family, presenting regular concerts of chamber music for mixed ensemble of wind, strings and keyboard, performed by Perth’s finest musicians.

Commemorating the 250th anniversary of his death, this Fathers Day concert is a tribute to Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), who was god-father of the Emanuel Ensemble’s namesake, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

Telemann is one of the most popular composers of the Baroque era, and this programme presents a selection of his finest trio sonatas, revealing the extraordinary genius of this Baroque master.

The Emanuel Ensemble returns to the Callaway Music Auditorium at the University of WA’s School of Music. With its excellent acoustics and comfortable tiered seating, this wood-panelled concert room provides the perfect setting for this exquisite programme.

Admission $37, concession & seniors $32, includes a programme and afternoon tea at interval. Numbered seating, so booking is recommended. Door sales available on the day.
